For each kind of atomic particle, there is an associated antiparticle with the same mass but opposite electromagnetic, weak, and strong charges, as well as spin. Each quantum number of a real neutral particle is identical with its antiparticle`s one. Some particles, e.g. photons, have no district antiparticle. For example, the antiparticle of an electron is a particle of positive electric charge called the positron.
