Matter, Antimatter and Einstein’s equation

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

Answer:

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

Mass Energy conversion and the Big Bang

Ajesh Asked:

Respected sir, in the famous theory of Albert Einstein which is of mass energy equivalence  he stated a formula E = mc2 .
sir does this mean that mass can be converted in to energy or the opposite will happen .
it is even stated in the big bang theory  that the universe was created with respect to the  above theory is that so?

 

Answer:

The mass energy conversion and the equivalence is a widely discussed topic in relation to the creation of the universe or the Big Bang.

There is some energy missing in calculation when we consider the equivalence; this is called dark energy.
