Unit Overview Materials (Unit Overview, NGSS Elements, Teacher Edition, Student Edition)
Why do some substances (and mixtures) heat up faster than other materials in a microwave oven?
How are we using ionizing EMR in a way that is safe and how can we protect ourselves while using it?
What happens to all the energy that is being transferred into the space inside the oven by microwave radiation?
How can the same type of EM radiation that we use to heat our food also be used to communicate across long distances?
How do changing electric and magnetic fields function as a wave to transfer energy from an antennae?
