What is Spin?

Spin is one of the fundamental properties of elementary particles. Electron and its antiparticle positron have spin=1/2. Photon which has no antiparticle has spin 1. The elementary particles known as fermions and their antiparticles (constituents of matter) have spin=1/2 and … Continue reading
