Asked in Space Travel and Exploration, Microwave Ovens

Can you cook on the moon?

You can. Something can be "hot" in a vacuum. For example: a sealed thermometer in space will read hot if it was facing the sun, but very cold if it was in full shadow (assuming it didn't explode from the absence of pressure holding it together.) So yes, as long as the heat source did not require naturally occurring oxygen for combustion as the moon doesn't have any - or an atmosphere - and heat transfer was carried out via direct...

Is it safe to put metal in a microwave oven?

The best answer (with just a bit of technical stuff). Ask around to find out if using metal in a microwave is okay, and the answer is often a no. A no is a safe answer, and that's for sure. There are instances where metal is absolutely to be avoided. Metal utensils are a no-no, and the use of plates with metal designs should be avoided. That said, there are times when a bit of foil greatly helps with things and...

Asked in Microwave Ovens

Do microwave ovens give off radiation?

Microwave ovens use high power electromagnetic radiation (radio) at a frequency close to 2.5 GHz to do the job of cooking. Much of the design of the appliance goes into making sure that very little of that radiation is "given off", and that it stays inside the cooking chamber where it belongs. The reason for that is not so much any concern that the meatloaf might take longer to cook if some of the radiation is lost. The concern is that radio RF energy at...

How does a microwave oven work?

A microwave oven takes advantage of the ability of microwave energy to act on atoms at a molecular level. Take a metal box with a door on it, put in some control electronics, a magnetron (the microwave generating device) and a high voltage power source and you're in business. The user puts an item or items into the cavity (that volume of space where the cooking occurs), and then punches up time and power (often by using preset selections). The high voltage...
