  • 3. How Microwaves preserve foods? Foods contain water ,sugars and fats Microwaves can be absorbed into them For Foods 915MHz – 2450 MHz
  • 4. Contd.. After absorption …………  Microwaves  oscillations of polar molecules Energy  Heat  Heat can preserve foods
  • 5. Microwave oven Creates radio waves at 2.45 GHz This waves propagate towards matter inside the oven Waves vibrate polar molecules Heat generates within the matter Works until door is opened or timer reaches zero
  • 6. How make it real
