My friend informed me this weekend that plasma can be created in your microwave using sliced grapes. Rather than conducting my own experiments, I youtubed it and found some cool videos, and I strongly suggest you do the same. Creating the plasma produces toxic ozone, and well, let's face it, experimenting with radiation isn't the brightest of ideas either. Enjoy!

Wow!

Microwaves are pretty amazing things aren't they?

There are other applications for microwaves which I won't go into here.

Suffice to say, I'm amazed that they're so easily obtainable by virtually anyone.

Great thread.

Thanks for sharing.

The most spectacular light show I've ever seen in a microwave was created by simple little ketchup packet.
Awesome.

This is what happens when unemployment reaches even higher. Too much spare time on our hands.

Care to tell us why this is in the Ancient & Lost Civilizations forum again?

Besides that, that's pretty cool. I'm gonna go make some plasma. Later

Place a blank CD/DVD in there and watch what happens.

As far as the OP, I am picturing the same conversation occuring in many many households -

"Hey y'all, watch this"

Reminds me of the military saying - Whats the 4 most dangerous phrases in the Marine Corp?
* A Major that says from my experience
* A Captain with a Map
* A Lt. with a plan
* A Lance Corporal who says whatch this.

No. 5, an officer that says "follow me men".


And a star and flag to the OP. I have never heard of this before.

As far as I am aware microwaves are a good way to transfer energy to plasmas, and are for instance used in tokamak reactors among other techniques to heat the plasma to point of fusion.

So all we need now is some more power and magnetic confinement of the plasma and you have your own kitchen fusion power plant.

All spectacular demonstrations in a microwave oven have the chance of permanently damaging the microwave generator [reduced or no power for your oven] or setting your house on fire.
