We all know that matter converts into energy, but will energy convert into matter?
Does it form antimatter by converting? Illustrate me with example.
Yes energy will convert into matter, this happens in particle accelerators a high amount of energy is pumped into a particle and then when it collides with another one, it will form new particles from the energy. Antimatter can also be formed in these high energy collisions such as when a muon is created and after about 2 micro seconds the muon decays into an electron, a muon neutrino and a muon anti-neutrino
In fact, the pair production describes that energy can be converted into both mater and antimatter through photon over or equal to a threshold of 1.02 MeV. Since Albert Einstein’s infamous equation, E = mc^2 tells us that matter and energy is interchangeable so if matter can become energy, then energy can become matter. I am actually doing a research project based on this, although I would need a lab to experiment on this idea.
