Why does an empty paper plate not heat up in the microwave

Answered by wiki @


Answer:

This is because the microwave oven heats the food by heating the water molecules that compose it.

This is achieved by increasing the vibration amplitude of the water molecules and their kinetic energy, therefore, increasing their temperature.

So, if the element that gets into the microwave oven does not contain water (as is the case of an empty paper plate), it will not heat up.
