Transcript of Microwave Research Project

Microwaves I. What wavelengths are used/or does the object register?
The wavelengths range from 1 meter to 1 millimeter I. Why are these wavelengths used to study your topic?
This helps me because the wavelength determines the type of wave, and the frequency.
II. Why are these wavelengths used to study your topic?
This helps me because the wavelength determines the type of wave, and the frequency. III. What type of wave does the energy travel in from its source?
Transverse IV. What kind of information does your topic provide?
This topic provides information on the microwaves that heat our food daily in our homes and schools. We should be aware of their use and also their dangers. V. How does the technology/process work?
As the energy enters the food, its power is absorbed in each successive layer of molecules. The rate of energy depends on the depth, density, chemical properties and temperature of the food.
VI. Why is your topic/wavelength significant to learn about?
Microwaves are significant because they are something we deal with every day and we should be responsible for knowing how they work and knowing the dangers that come along with their usefulness. VII. What are some controversial issues that might surround your topic?
One controversial issue dealing with microwaves is the fact that they are not safe near pregnant women. Also, there has been controversy on whether microwaves negatively affect the nutritional value of food. VIII. What types of professions would study your topic?
Physicist IX. What kinds of technology or instruments are used to study your topic?
Interferometer X. How do they work?
This instrument measures electromagnetic waves by splitting light or using wave interference
XI. Where in the world is your topic commonly studied?
This is commonly studied in the United States b/c we use them so frequently
