(G8 Project Abstract) How to Cook Yourself: Radiation and Microwaves

Group 8 will measure the amount of electromagnetic radiation that certain appliances give off.  We will test a variety of devices, but predominantly focus on and compare microwaves that differ in size, antiquity, and wear & tear.  We will use RF meters to measure the amounts of radiation given off and the Watts Up Pro to measure the amount of power used to identify any correlation between power and radiation.  We will measure radiation with respect to distance from the microwave and direction of the RF meter in the surrounding electromagnetic field and compare our findings to traditional beliefs about microwave radiation.
