How to Visualize Energy Using an Ordinary Microwave Oven

Kishore Hari from Tested and Zeke Kossover from the Exploratorium in San Francisco demonstrate how to visualize energy using an ordinary microwave oven.

Have you ever wondered why your microwave oven has a rotating turntable, or what exactly makes water boil inside a microwave? This week, we’re joined by Zeke Kossover from The Exploratorium to demonstrate an experiment that visualizes microwave energy in the form of a light show. Plus, we show how glass can absorb microwaves by melting a soda bottle!
