What is antimatter?


Question asked by: knowitall

Anti-matter is physically the opposite of matter, that is the anti-particle of each particle of matter has the exact opposite properties.

Therefore when a piece of matter comes together with its equivalent anti-matter twin then they cancel out.

It is thought that at the big bang both were created but for some reason there was more matter than anti-matter created, hence all the matter that we see around us in the universe today.
