Asked in Microwave Ovens
What does it mean when a microwave oven uses convection microwaves?
A convection microwave uses both microwaves and convection heating to cook the food. The convection cooking allows the food to be browned and cooks the outer part of the food while the microwaves cook the interior of the food. ...
Can you see micro waves?
No, unless you are not talking about microwaves in the electromagnetic spectrum. The reason we can not see them is because they are not part of the visible spectrum. Microwaves have lower frequencies. Microwaves do use microwaves. The microwave uses microwaves to excite the water molecules making the food cook faster than a conventional oven. ...

How are microwaves and mobiles linked?
Only similarity between a microwave and mobile is that both uses a electromagnetic radiation but of different frequency for its operation. Microwaves uses micro waves to heat up food molecules where as mobile phone uses radio wave frequency. ...

What is the difference between conventional oven and microwave oven?
A microwave uses microwaves (hence the name) to cook food, microwaves penetrate most food substances and cook 'from the inside out'. An oven uses heat waves which in simplistic terms are waves that heat the substance 'from the outside in'. Unlike microwaves heat waves do not penetrate. ...

What objects use microwaves?
Microwaves have lots of uses, some commercial (such as microwave ovens, satellite TV, and weather radar) and some military (such as missile guidance systems), applications in the field of scientific research, microwaves monitor the environmental health of our planet as well as to learn more about the universe. Research scientists use microwaves in two types of systems: active and passive. In active systems, such as radars, scientists send out microwaves and examine what comes back. In passive systems scientists simply look for naturally...
Asked in Physics
How are microwaves affected by air glass and water?
This depends upon the particular frequency of the microwaves. Your microwave oven uses microwaves that are tuned to the exact resonance frequency of the water molecule, therefore they are absorbed by water and cause it to get hotter. Other frequencies would tend to pass through water. Similarly, microwaves normally pass through both air and glass, although there are some frequencies that would be absorbed by glass. Air is transparent to all frequencies of microwaves. ...
Asked in Electromagnetic Radiation
Are microwaves helpful?
Yes, microwaves are a type of radio that has many uses: microwaves were first used by the Allies in World War 2 in RADAR systems that helped intercept many Nazi and Japanese aircraft (including V-1 "cruise missiles") microwaves were used in telephone company long distance calls from the late 1940s into the 1990s microwaves are used in WiFi and Bluetooth interfaces on computers microwaves are used by cellphones to connect to cell towers microwaves are used for cooking purposes by heating the water in the food,...
