Why Do Grapes Spark In Microwave?

For scientific purposes and reason, some people tried to make an experiment regarding why grapes spark once it is placed and heated in the microwave. They found out that most often than not grapes will either cause a spark or burst once the microwave is on and warms or heats the grapes. Those who tried the experiment who have a background or sufficient knowledge regarding physics or general science found out one thing, namely, the correlation between the grape component and the temperature of the microwave. Basically, the reason behind the spark caused by placing the grapes inside the microwave is due to the heat emitted by the microwave which eventually triggers the composition of the grapes itself.

Now, let us evaluate and see what goes on the moment you put a grape inside a microwave, foremost, the grapes will be spinned inside the microwave as the said appliance will start to emit heat towards the grapes itself. Soon after, the grapes’ skin will now serve as the so-called ‘dielectric’, meaning to say, it becomes a non-conducive form of an antenna which eventually gather all the electric waves inside the microwave.

After this system takes place, the temperature inside the microwave will goes up and the very moment it reaches to the highest Celsius, normally around 3thousand Celsius, then there will be a formation of plasma. Now you might wonder, what is this plasma? The plasma is actually the by-product of the heating process of the microwave towards the grapes. The very juice inside the grapes cools down the plasma created inside the microwave. This process is responsible then for the very spark of the grapes. Hence, it can be said now that there is a principle in physics which takes place during the interaction between the grapes which you placed in the microwave.
