Is it possible for antimatter to different inertia?

    If inertia is a property of matter, does this mean that antimatter has some sort of different inertia?

    Again, haven't taken a physics class scince I'm only in junior high. Please don't judge me

    Antimatter particles have positive inertial mass. They accelerate in the direction of an applied force. It is assumed that their gravitational interaction also corresponds to a positive mass, though this is difficult to test.
