Susan Stalte Microwave Mysteries: Beep, Zap, Defrost Learning Seed 201 Five Facts from the video: The Raytheon company created the first made microwave ovens in 1947 Most glass, ceramics, and plastics do not absorb microwaves. Water, fats, and sugar do absorb microwaves, (which is how food is cooked) Microwaves are always released at full power Power levels are about time, not power The higher the wattage, the more microwaves are created Five terms and their definitions: Magnetron: create radio wave signals in radar Microwaves: electromagnetic waves, similar to radio and signals Magnetron tube: converts high voltage into very short waves of electromagnetic energy (creates microwaves) Hot spots: moisture and sugar rich areas that heat up faster Erupting: When a liquid is heated beyond its boiling point and violently boils over

Unformatted text preview: Would you recommend the video? I would definitely recommend this video to a friend! The title may sound silly at first, but it actually is quite interesting. Before watching the film, I had no idea that microwaves did not exist until 1947. I was presuming that theyve been around for a lot longer!

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
