The wavelength of the microwaves is tuned to produce a standing wave. This is where you get two waves, one going in each direction, these interact to make some areas where there is a huge vibration and others where there are none.This means that there are places where the microwaves are very intense, where the molecules will be vibrated very powerfully so heated strongly. Others where the microwaves are weak. These areas separated by half a wavelength. This is why there is a turntable in a microwave oven, otherwise parts of your food will be overcooked and others will still be raw.
A mosquito flew into my microwave. I zapped it for 5 to 10 seconds. When I opened the door, the mosquito flew out. Why?
