Popcorn has moisture in the center of the kernel, an efficient microwave absorber. As the water molecules vibrate and heat the kernel erupts and turns inside out. Water is believed to be the best absorber of microwaves; therefore foods with higher moisture content will cook quicker than those of lower moisture content. Continue reading →

How Air Conditioners Work

by Guest on Oct 23, 2010

With a fridge, the cold air is contained in an insulated box; air conditioners blow the cool air out into your room. Continue reading →
