Matter, Antimatter and Einstein’s equation

Share with:

It is my understanding that when antimatter comes in contact with matter that there is nothing left but pure energy.

And since energy and matter are interchangeable (E=Mc2) doesn’t that mean you are actually left with all matter and no antimatter?

Asked Ken


The equation E = mc2 tells about mass – energy relation and both matter and antimatter has a positive mass.
