I love microwaves, I think they are the coolest thing ever. My science teacher even let me teach a lesson (that I made) on microwaves! On this instructable I will teach you a thing or two about microwave radiation.

Step 1: history of micorwaves

Microwaves were first predicted by James Clerk Maxwell (second picture) in 1864 by use of his equations. Later during 1888 Heinrich Hertz  (third picture) proved the existence of microwaves by building a device that produced and detected microwave radiation. His device used a horse trough, a wrought iron point spark, Leyden jars, and a length of zinc gutter with a parabolic cross-section that worked as a reflection antenna. In 1894 J. C. Bose  (fourth picture) publicly demonstrated radio control of a bell using millimeter wavelengths, and conducted research into the broadcasting of microwaves.
<p>Informative article, I have heard that microwaves produce small amounts of radiation but still not sure if it harms human&rsquo;s health on daily basis while using microwave ovens. I am thinking of purchasing a Geiger counter for my household at <a href="https://ecotestgroup.com/ " rel="nofollow">ecotestgroup.com</a> to detect radiation at home. I also found some interesting information on microwaves usage, for example: microwaves are used to detect speeding cars and to send telephone and television communications. Industry uses microwaves to dry and cure plywood, to cure rubber and resins.</p>
<p>Hi, reading your article, I can only say you're wrong. First, excuse my bad English. I work with transmitters much smaller than a microwave power and suffer tinnitus. With the microwave time is not important, but the dose you receive is important. Think that nothing will happen if the molecules of your body change position 2,500,000,000 per second?. A watt and half non-ionizing radiation kills your sperm in 12hrs. Also liquefies your blood and causes damage to the DNA. Never expose yourself to a magnetron !!! Stay away from WIFI and Bluetooth. Use wired, not wireless phones. Use the cell phone for short periods of time, and stay away from the antenna masts. You must inform more, you can produce you one irrebersible damage in a very short time. Greetings.

<p>Military honchos in the cold war told me they used to step in front of power transmitters just enough to raise sperm temp making them impotent for a weekend of pleasure on leave... </p>
Hey! How the hell do i make/get a waveguide ????
<p>You take a senior math course on how to calculate curls of electric/magnetic field vectors and then wave guide theory...</p>
fascinating well done,.. informative... short and to the point. do i sound like your English teacher? you gave me enough knowledge to understand what we all now take for granted. I have some friends that wont enter a room witha microwave in it and others who use them for all the kitchen needs. I am still learning about them,..I thank you very much. The grape exp. played but the other utube didnt.
Are there any materials that do not reflect microwaves and are electrically conductive?
Cute Article,&nbsp; Not much instructions as much as education, but still a cute science report.<br> <br> You did miss one critical point:<br> <br> What EM radiation in the microwave region does to people.<br> <br> With that in mind, unless you want to risk <strong>STERILITY </strong>and <strong>BLINDNESS</strong>, best to give that last step a pass.
