    Hi, I've been doing some reading and found something I don't quite understand.

    An antiparticle has the same properties of it's counter-particle, except an opposite charge.

    So, an anti-neutron has the same mass as a neutron, and an opposite charge, but as the neutron has no charge, is an anti-neutron the same as a neutron?

    How can you distinguish one from the other?

      Ahh, of course. No idea why that didn't occur to me.

      Thanks for the help.
