UNWISE MICROWAVE OVEN EXPERIMENTS
High Voltage in the Kitchen
William J. Beaty
Are you a kid? Does your microwave oven belong to your parents? If so,
then don't even THINK about trying any of these
experiments. I'm serious. If I wreck my microwave oven, I can buy
another. Also, I'm a professional electrical engineer. I
know enough physics and RF effects to take correct safety
precautions when I'm experimenting. But you don't know the precautions,
so you should be smart: read and enjoy my writing, but don't duplicate my
tests unless you grow up to become an electronics tech, engineer, etc.,
and buy your OWN microwave oven.
Disclaimer: This information is presented for your information only.
Anyone who tries to duplicate these demonstrations does so entirely at
their own risk. There is a chance that you will damage your microwave
oven. There is a chance that you will cause a fire. There is a chance
that a heated object will explode. Heated water can unexpectedly burst
into violent boiling. Messing with a microwave oven is
stupid if you don't know what you're doing.
