How to film the inside of a microwave (2 ways)

May 10, 2020
I'm going to show you two

ways

to

film

inside a

microwave

and along the way I'm going to show you the easiest way to make a plasma in a

microwave

none of this cutting a grape in half or striking a match right now they're guaranteed plasma in a microwave every time it all started with a whatsapp conversation i had with my wife Leanne when she was out for the night and i was home alone at 10:33. I sent this message, I think I figured out how to

film

inside a microwave. I'm going to do a play. She responded almost immediately by saying exciting.

Try not to break the microwave smiley face. You might assume that message is passive-aggressive if you don't know Leanne, but it's not. she really supports me two minutes later at 10:35 i sent this message two minutes it was very sudden i thought i figured out all the things that could go wrong but it turns out there were some unknowns anyway she replied saying question mark fixable its a good question isn't it? I'll get back to that in a minute but the reason I wanted to film inside a microwave and you'll know this if you've seen my previous videos is that there are fun experiments you can do that involve putting a thing in a microwave the problem is it's hard to see the results of that experiment, as it is happening because of the structure of a microwave door, it is a microprocessor door made of several layers, at least two layers of glass that give it shine and reflection, but the most annoying thing is which has i got this layer of metal mesh which while annoying is actually the most important part of the door from a safety standpoint because that's what prevents microwave radiation from getting out of the oven so i thought that if microwave radiation can't pass a metal mesh maybe I can put a camera in the microwave if I surround it with a metal mesh and you probably know you're not supposed to put metal in a microwave qui but to say as i questioned it since the inside of a microwave is made of metal so as proof i just got i got a sheet of metal mesh just a little square and i put it flush against the inside of the microwave which is made of metal, i actually put it flush against the door, which is that it's glass, not metal, maybe i was wrong because one corner of the metal mesh got hot incredibly fast and literally within two seconds i opened the door, a bright red heart and it melted the glass, there was a small drop of liquid glass so my plan was to wait for it to cool down and just remove it because I didn't want anyone to know.

Well I did. It turns out that the glass on the inside of a microwave is toughened and one side -- the effects of toughening the glass is that if you introduce even a small crack, it will spread very quickly to the rest of the glass, which is what happened when I tried to touch it, so I mean dance, at least that's the question, but it got me thinking. like why is it that microwave radiation can't get th scrape those little holes in the metal mesh and it's actually a quirk of wave dynamics so microwaves are electromagnetic waves and waves can't pass through of a hole if the hole is substantially smaller than the wavelength of the wave, so microwaves have a wavelength of about 12 centimeters. the ones in a microwave oven do at least and the holes in the metal mesh of a microwave door are about a millimeter or two in size why waves can't pass through small holes it's a bit tricky no I think there is an intuitive way to do it explain it, but it goes out of the math, one of the results is that if you take the ratio between the wavelength of the wave and the size of the hole and then raise it to the fourth power, that it tells you how much the power of the microwaves is down.

The wavelength of microwaves is about 10 centimeters. The holes in a microwave grill in the door are about 1 millimeter, so that's a factor of a hundred. Microwave is 100 millionth of what it would be if the holes were about 10 centimeters wide. How does that help us film well in microwaves? Reducing the power of radiation by a factor of a hundred million is clearly oh, a death we could do! larger holes quick safety warning modifying a microwave can make it dangerous this is not for children it is for adults only and if you are planning to modify a microwave please note that you must assess the risks yourself this video does not constitute an risk assessment let's assume the holes were one centimeter in size, well that's a difference of a factor of 10 compared to a wavelength of 10 centimeters, so 10 to the power of 4 is 10,000, so if the If the holes were 1 centimeter in size, the microwave radiation would be attenuated by a factor of 10,000 compared to a 10 centimeter wide hole to me, that's fine and it's also big enough to put a camera phone in front of it.

If you subscribe to Kody's lab, you will have seen a similar method. it's one although it comes from the side that the video is actually not available anymore its a long story why but the short story is Cody's lab is an amazing channel and you should check it out. In fact, I skipped a step which is removal. of the glass layer from the outside and the glass inside produces glare, but actually another interesting thing that I learned when I was looking at the safety of all this is that although the mesh does stop the microwaves from spreading out of the microwave, in they actually attenuate a short distance so right next to the mesh there's some microwave radiation but it falls off exponentially i think that's why you have that layer of glass on the outside of the microwave it actually creates a space between you and the mesh, so as a note of caution, don't put any part of your body against the mesh when you're doing this experiment, especially don't put your eyeball against the hole, it can cause cataracts anyway, that's how I was able to film exp running so bright cd and glass melting but it wasn't going to work for 2 other videos i wanted to do to explain the second method for a stuffing inside microwave think about how it was When a pinhole camera works you illuminate a scene you want to take a picture of and the light bounces off objects in the scene towards the camera, but think about the direction the light needs to go to enter the camera, so that the light that leaves the subject's foot can travel in only one direction to enter the camera what is this direction, as if it bounces off the subject's head, there is only one direction it can travel to enter the camera, what is this direction, so you get this inverted image inside the camera here's one that i made and its abandoned ship outside my studio and here it is through the pinhole camera there is al

ways

a compromise with a pinhole camera which is that the hole is very small so not much light coming into the camera the image is very dark so what you do is you make the hole bigger but the problem with making the hole bigger now is that the light coming from your scene has a range of direction it is where you can travel to get into the camera and therefore the image is blurry, what is the solution? the solution is to use a lens if you put a lens in that larger hole in the pinhole camera then it will focus the light it's not a pinhole camera anymore because you put the lens in it probably the lens focuses objects at a specific distance whatever is in front will be out of focus anything behind it will be out of focus and if you know a bit about cameras you will be familiar with this compromise like if you want everything in your stitching to be more or less in focus then what you want to do is in your camera i want to close the aperture, make it smaller so your camera looks more like a pinhole camera.
I can actually demonstrate it with this video at the moment when my aperture is wide open, so I have what's called a narrow depth of field, which means there's only a close-range d relative of distances that are in focus. that's around my face everything in front is blurry everything behind is below like rear war but i can control it from my phone so if i close the aperture there's less light coming in so it's getting darker. I'm going to offset that with shutter speed so I see darker scenes, but the back wall is now more in focus and so is my focus this morning.
Technology. We use this to our advantage for shooting inside a microwave well if you have a DSLR with a really good lens as a prime then you probably have a really low f-stop you can really open the aperture mine goes down to 1.4 which it's definitely enough to pan inside microwave and then you focus your lens on the subject inside the microwave and the grid will be completely out of focus and they'll act almost like an ND filter as if they're darkening the image which you can then compensate in in other respects this method is superior to the camera phone method in a few ways if you're shooting something that produces its own light source, like why a wolf, then you probably want manual control over things like shutter speed ISO f- stop things like that which is often not possible with a smartphone it's also a better image you also know a DSLR with a good lens is a better image i Even through a mesh than a camera phone the other thing is you know you've drilled a hole in your microwave that's the only place you can film that's the only camera angle you have whereas with the method of external narrow depth of field you can move the camera wherever you want which brings me to the main event how to make a plasma in a microwave guaranteed so some methods involve cutting a grape in half and you have to leave a bit of skin on it to For me that works like 1 out of 10 times it's pretty unreliable maybe I just don't do it very well but anyway I've found that if you buy carbon fiber weave and you rip it out a little bit b crumple it up a little bit put it in the microwave, you will always get a plasma and all you have to do is place a Pyrex Bowl on top and you can catch I have been talking to the creator of the Red Nile YouTube channel about filming in a microwave because it will do it for a next video.
