3How It Works?
Microwave ovens cook/heat food using waves of energy that are similar to radio waves but shorter. But let’s see what actually happens when you press the start button. Instantly after we hit the button energetic waves start moving through inside of oven’s compartment. These microwaves release electromagnetic radiation. The waves vibrate quickly and build up thermal (heat) energy, at about 2.5 gigahertz a minute. These waves are unusually selective, mainly affecting water and other molecules that are electrically asymmetrical one end positively charged and the other negatively charged. It is the same frequency of your cell phone.
