Description

How do microwaves heat up your coffee? Adjust the frequency and amplitude of microwaves. Watch water molecules rotating and bouncing around. View the microwave field as a wave, a single line of vectors, or the entire field.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Describe matter in terms of molecular motion. The description should include diagrams to support the description and how temperature affects the image.
