How does a microwave oven work?
The waves penetrate the material, causing the molecules to vibrate and that charge up electromagnetic energy and heat up the material. In a microwave oven there is 2.45 billion Hertz, which does not matter as long as the oven door is waterproof, because the human body only tolerates 10 hertz maximum. This is why it is always necessary to move away from the microwave oven when it is in action.
