    What is matter and anti-matter?

    Please let us know as to what is matter and anti-matter in easy language for the comprehension of an ordinary man.

    Thanks

      Usually, the difference is in the charge of a particle. An electron, for example has a negative charge while a positron has a positive charge. smile

        Is it correct to state that matter is +ve charged and anti-matter is -vely charged or the vice versa?

          No. All it means is that any particle of matter, whether it is positively or negatively charged will have a corresponding anti-matter particle of opposite charge.

      You can shove matter up yr ass. Doing the same with anti-matter will blow you up. big_smile

    All matter has it's almost equal opposite.  It has to do with quantum and other physics, but from what I can understand, when matter and it's antimatter collide, you lose some of its projectile momentum - this is as close as I can get to helping you

      Matter is physical and exists physically; is ati-matter also physical?

      Thanks

    I guess that everything in science has an opposite, even and including atom matter.matter is atomic size particle of any substance.

      I had heard that there were rings around Uranus, is that true? wink

    anti matter isnt anything misterious, its just normal particles with the opposite charge.

    a positron for example , is just an electron with a positive charge

    if an anti matter and matter particle come together they anihilate into pure energy as photons.

    so according to E=mc *2 if u had a gram of anti hydrogen and a gram of hydrogen that would produce four times´╗┐ the energy of hiroshima smile

    however it would costs us 51 trillion dollar to make a gram of anti hydrogen.We would also have problems conatining it.
