Step 1: Materials List

first of course you will need a grape. some work better than others.make sure the grapes aren't cold or it won't work.

Full materials list-
Grape
knife(caution!!)
glass cup
microwave


Step 2: Step 1 Prepairing the Grape

First slice a thin piece of the top.

Step 3: Step 2

Then cut the grape down the center "pic 1"  make sure you do not cut all the way through the grape. Next put the grape in the microwave "pic 2"

Step 4: 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

    Do you need blue grapes for this? Tried it with 1 sort of white grapes and that didn’t work.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
