[Histonet] Wattage output determination.
In response to Peggy Wenk's comments about measuring wattage output in
microwaves, here is a simple method (that also had the Steven Slap seal of
approval). I hope you find it useful.
To Determine the Wattage Output of a Microwave Device:
Place 1 liter of room temperature water into a nonconductive, microwave
safe, container (preferably narrow necked). Measure and record the start
temperature before subjecting to microwave exposure.
Place the container in the microwave device and run for 2 minutes on the
maximum power setting.
Remove the container immediately. Briefly stir or shake the water to
eliminate any thermal layers, then measure and record the end
Subtract the original start temperature from the end temperature and
multiply the result by 35.
This procedure should be repeated three times, each time using room
temperature water and a fresh container. The results should be averaged
to provide the wattage output of the device at the time of testing.
