How Microwaves Work

by Guest on Feb 27, 2010

Created by a magnetron electron tube, microwaves heat food to a depth of one inch. As the heat is conducted inward the rest of the food is cooked. Microwaves bounce around inside the cavity of the oven and are eventually absorbed by the food, causing molecules in the food to vibrate producing heat through friction.

That is, a special refrigerant gas such as Freon is heated and then cooled through coils to give the cold air.
