What happens if cold fusion occurs in your microwave?
You will have experienced the impossible.
The depends on what is meant by cold fusion. Cold fusion is nuclear fusion at low temperature, possibly room temperature, and this has been achieved. Cold fusion is sometimes spoken of as a way to produce power from nuclear fusion, and this has not been achieved, as far as we know. The Fleischman-Pons experiments, which were regarded as promising for power production, could not be replicated, and are widely regarded as being an example of…
"Hot" nuclear fusion (this is not the term normally used) is exactly what the name implies, the materials are heated, which provides them with enough energy to overcome the normal repulsion of protons. Cold nuclear fusion requires no heating and has not yet been proved, although dozens of Physicists and Electro-Chemists have claimed to have created cold fusion. Cold Fusion relies on other forces, such as pressure, to overcome the electrostatic force of repulsion.
The foil will spark and possibly set the microwave on fire. NINJAWOLF99's answer: When I put maynase packets in the microwave to heat them up, after only two seconds, a large, blu flash could be seen on the inside. I was VERY lucky the thing didn't set on fire. I took them out. 1) They did not melt 2) They still felt cold. Answer: No.
