Re: [Phys-l] Microwave oven experiment

I thought this'd already been done, as w/ the mode disrupters there'd not be hot spots.


p.s. the metal fan is at the top of the cavity and, in all the ones I've dismantled, powered by the draught from the exhaust fan.

If you can disable the mode-stirrer by disconnecting the geared motor in
the oven roof, and turn off the plinth, you will have a better
opportunity to observe intensity peaks.
