Microwaves travel in straight lines, so they can be aimed in a given direction. They can be reflected by dense objects so that they send back echoes-this is basis for radar. They can be absorbed, with their energy being converted into heat. Three major uses of microwave are Microwaves for radar, High-Speed cooking and telephones without cables. Early radars
