Is antimatter the absence of matter?

No. Antimatter is a kind of matter, in which certain properties are the opposite of normal matter. For example, the anti-proton has a negative charge instead of a positive charge; the anti-electron has a positive charge instead of a negative charge; some other properties are changed, too, in antimatter.No. Antimatter is a kind of matter, in which certain properties are the opposite of normal matter.
