Textbook Problem

Large quanti?es of antimatter isolated from normal matter should behave exactly like normal matter. An antiatom for example, composed of positrons. antiprotons, and antineutrons should have the same atomic spectrum as its matter counterpart. Would you be able to tell it is antimatter by its emission of antiphotons? Explain briefly.

To determine

The prediction about the matter to be antimatter on the basis of the emission of antiphotons from the matter.



A material that is composed of an antiparticle is commonly known as antimatter. It possess opposite charge to that of matter.

The first antimatter is positron which has positive charge while the electron has negative charge. In nature, every particle has its antiparticle. The interaction of particle and its antimatter counterpart annihilate each other converting their masses into pure energy. There are some particles which are their own antiparticles like the neutral pion,ποand photons
