                                    1. The more food you are cooking, the less energy there is for each item to absorb
                                      1. Microwaves cannot go through metals, but can go through glass, ceramic, plastic, or paper.

                                          1. Microwaves cause molecules in food to vibrate.
                                            1. An electronic vacumm tube called a magnetron
