+arnav raj bet that pesky matchstick company doesn't list what ingredients are in their matchheads.... But hang on, your match is already burning when you turn the microwave on, right? Likely by then any Potassium (K) etc. have all burnt up and it's the wood or paper burning.... No? Post a response vid!! Let's check your plasma from match sticks!! Cool.

I did this with a potato. I've cooked many potatoes in the microwave but this one turned to charcoal in a couple of minutes. I had no idea why until now.

Is there a smart person who knows why the grape's index of reflection is 10????? is it like the god's fruit??
Balloon Yoon
Balloon Yoon - 7 часов назад
Also, why does the index of reflection goes up in the microwave? Is it because microwaves have longer length than light?

Veritasium thank you so much for the reply!! I have one more question, would it be possible to simulate this effect with raindrops?
Veritasium - 21 час назад
It’s basically water but in the microwave range, the index of refraction is 10

Derek, I have a question. If you dropped the grapes with specific chemicals would the same ionizing effect occur with the new chemical like with the Na & K ionizing?

Which is exactly why experiments of this nature need to be taught and studied, not discouraged as "mischief". Today's "screwing around" could be tomorrow's groundbreaking discovery.

But what is Plasma???
Mike Sullivan
Mike Sullivan - День назад
It's kind of the 4th state of matter... solid, liquid, gas, plasma. Unlike the other states which don't change their chemistry plasma only happens to elements. Ex: water ( 1 oxygen + 2 hydrogen atoms ) can be ice, liquid water, or water vapor... solid, liquid, and gas... but you can't have water plasma... if you tried what would happen is the oxygen and two hydrogens would separate and become oxygen plasma and hydrogen plasma... and it wouldn't be water anymore. I hope this helps.

Wow, talk about old new...this was hashed out at least 20 years ago to my knowledge at least. The grape halves are effectively converted to dipole antennas, and since their refraction and size makes it ideal for a microwave's wavelength, they swap energy between the narrow skin connecting them as the sine wave alternates between positive and negative from one pole to the other. This massive energy transfer through a small conductive media that heats quickly (grape skin), causes it to generate plasma.
Also, another easy way to generate plasma in a microwave if you don't have grapes, just stick a match in a small block of wood or similar to hold it vertical, light the match, then turn on the microwave. It's usually more impressive and reliable than the grape trick.

This also works with Oscar Myer cheese dogs - I'm not kidding. I accidentally did the same thing one day trying to heat 2 cheese dogs up in the microwave and where they were touching it made sparks and that firey plasma. Scared the hell out of me, but it was cool, haha

It it nice finally knowing exactly why. Also, seeing the plasma(because I never went longer than a spark or two) really was amazing.
Just imagine, "yeah I have to go refill the grape tanks for the interstellar engine."
So the grapes aid in the process of converting energy, as well as magnifying it. I wonder what the coronation between small quantities of wine, aiding in our biological processes.
Could that plasma creation, with the microwaves from the sun, aid in neural connections?

New breakthrough in matter:energy conversion renders all forms of energy redundant instantly. Even the 2kg of antimatter I have painstakingly collected may as well just be poured down the sink. Instead grapes have become the densest form of energy known to man. Who needs cold fusion?

Yes, it is. You should check the leakage of your microwave. They all leak some, but yours may have a problem. Don't stand and stare into the inside while waiting for stuff to heat. That applies to all microwaves.

ur analysis is very helpful. inside the grape, the velocity of the microwave becomes 10 times slower. so the wavelength of the wave becomes shorter. the resultant wavelength is equal to that of diameter of the grape. thats why inside the grape, a standing wave has occurred, so outside of the grape man can observe the microwave is trapped. if those two grapes are placed as far from each other as the wavelength of the microwave, an oscillation therebetween has occurred. around the contact point according to the strength of the oscillating microwave, air molecules have ionized. the ionization continues because of the supply by the electromagnetic field.

"But the important quantity is how big is the wavelength inside the object?" No. You’re making a statement, not asking a question. Phrase it as a statement.
"But the important quantity is how big the wavelength IS inside the object." PERIOD. It's a statement.
I’m honestly wondering why young people don’t have the ability to articulate correctly, is it not being taught in schools? Is it that people are learning on YouTube instead of the correct places to learn? It’s your own LANGUAGE. This is a basic ability, not something you need to have a degree in.

Is that law effect on Human too?
so if the wave of radiation trapped inside us, will we burn each other if we touched?
so what's next? will we travel by light speed? or shot plasma from hand? haha im joking..
