Step 4: THE TEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Picture of THE TEST!!!!!!!!!!!!
Place cup over the grape.make sure that air is not completely restricted. IMPORTANT NOTE-change the cup about every 2 to 3 tests or it will explode.(I speak from experience). Then put it in for about 10 to 15 seconds (depending on your microwave). And finally nuke it,i love doing this experiment its fun easy and you don't need a lot of materials. it may take a couple of tries and couple different types of grapes. Here is proof that i have done this experiment.    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwzmYHy9Hhc

how dangerous is this?

Just don't microwave it for too long or it could become a fire hazard. And don't burn your hand by touching the grape right away.

ok but I wouldm't try this in my house maybe a workshop
tigr87 (author)  nerd74732 years ago
I guess. The worst thing that could happen is that you could burn yourself by picking it up or the glass cup might break from temp change.

yeah just dont dink it in cold water it will shatter after it has been heated

You should probably put a warning on this Instructable. This can be very dangerous if not properly done and you don't want to be the one responsible when someone burns down their house doing this

do I have a chance of ruining my microwave doing this?
tigr87 (author)  Pyrofan3 years ago
i would be lying to you if i said no.but i think that doing it to show your friends wont hurt.just remember not to do it for more than 15 seconds and not to use the same cup if it gets too hot.
