metal in the microwave


Bouncy Wave Energy

a: Metal in the microwave ~
b: breakwater to ocean waves

What: If you put metal in the microwave,many sparks and arcs are created. It can be dangerous if you let the oven run for too long. Why is this? Microwave radiation and metal, steel, don't mixing very well. At this frequency of electromagnetic radiation hits the metal atoms they do not absorb this energy, but deflect it. This is what happens when ocean waves hit a break water; the energy in the ocean waves can be violently deflected.
