If you've ever been looking for ways to make a plasma at home (and let's be honest who did not have?] ), you will quickly find an interesting kitchen experiment that includes one or more grapes. Placing two grapes or two halves of the grape next to each other in the microwave oven, and then firing it, you will see an outbreak of sparks and a hot white plasma between them … but why? The document tried to answer this pressing question, and they managed to destroy a whole bunch of microwaves in the process. Their work, which is described in detail in a new paper The works of the National Academy of Sciences show that grapes and microwaves have rather bizarre relations
. change their microwave ovens, install the camera and remove the protective door. They fried a lot of grapes, as well as water-soaked balls to sharpen the mechanisms when working at the contact point between two objects.
] "Many microwaves have actually been affected during the experiments," said Hamza Khattak of Trent University, co-author of the study Ars Technica . "At one point, we had a microwave oven cemetery in the laboratory before disposing of many early iterations in electronic waste." the formation of a hot plasma in the center. As it turned out, this is not entirely correct, and researchers believe that they know what's really going on. Inside the device, the result is a "hot spot" that is formed at the point of contact. The grapes act as two condensed balls of intense microwave energy, and when they touch the sparks and flies of the plasma.
