    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.

    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.
