Theoretical Possibility of “Opposite” Gravitational Mass? [duplicate]

This is an unusual idea that I have been entertaining for some time, and I can't find anything about it online. However, it is so simple that someone must have conceived it before. First, I will ...

Why is there no negative mass? [duplicate]

We know that the entire matter has a property called mass. Charge is also a property of matter. If negative charge can exist, why don't negative mass exist? Also, like charges repel each other. Then ...

How would behave theoretical matter with negative mass? [duplicate]

I wonder if there is any possibility to evaluate theoretical characteristics of matter with negative mass? This is not thing of anti-mass but classical matter just with negated weight. I thing that if ...

Negative Mass and gravitation

Since Newtonian gravity is analogous to electrostatics shouldn't there be something called negative mass? Also, a moving charge generates electric field, but why doesn't a moving mass generate some ...

How could something have negative mass?

With all the theories on how Neutrinos apparently broke the light barrier, there was one theory someone told me of how neutrinos might have less than zero mass, but she didn't explain how this was ...

How likely is negative energy to exist?

Negative Energy is the exact opposite of ordinary energy as it would move in the opposite direction from its momentum and accelerate in the opposite direction of an applied force. It would also warp ...

Is it possible to have a negative attraction to gravity just like how magnets with same pole does?

Layman question here, is it possible for an object to be negatively attracted to a gravitational pull of another object? Like how same pole magnets repels each other, can it happen on gravity too?

Motivation for Negative Mass

Lately I've been reading a little bit (mostly here and on Wikipedia) about exotic matter, particularly matter with a negative mass. This question appears to be the original question on the site of the ...

Does negative mass reverse the arrow of time?

General relativity predicts that normal mass (positive mass) results in the curvature of spacetime which in return leads to gravitation. Since space and time are bonded together, any change on the ...

Can energy be extracted indefinitely from a mass dipole/mass negative mass pair in perpetual motion?

Some days ago I have read this short piece of article by Hammond which caused me to revisit the theoretical properties of negative mass. It is known that a pair consists of ordinary mass and negative ...

Sign of mass of an anti-particle

When deriving the Lagrangian for Spin $\frac{1}{2}$ particles we are naturally led to using $\Psi$ and $\bar{\Psi}$. The Euler-Lagrange equations lead us to two wave equations: \begin{equation} (i\...

Gravitons with negative mass?

I have been reading several papers on massive gravity. All of them have equations that involve the square of the graviton mass, rather than graviton mass itself. See for example, equations 43 and 44 ...
