What effects can radiation have? Electronic current heating, photosynthesis, ionization.
Apacket of radiation is a photon.
What’s the difference between ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation? Ionized radiation absorbs more energy and it can ionized but the non-ionizedradiations packs less energy and radio photons produces hardly and any heating effect.
How do microwave ovens work? Radiation is transferred to the absorbing material (food), heats itup and disappears. The food heats the container.
How can we control the radiation in a microwave? By altering the power setting.
Why is it important that the walls and door of amicrowave oven reflect the microwave radiation? Because the waves reflect directly to the food.
How much larger is the power of a microwave than a normal bulb in you house?10 times larger.
