"We gain access to the structure of reality via a machinery of conception which extracts intelligible indices from a world that is not designed to be intelligible and is not originarily infused with meaning.”

- Ray Brassier, “Concepts and Objects” In The Speculative Turn Edited by Levi Bryant et. al. (Melbourne, Re.press 2011) p. 59.

thats quite the assumption, a sanctuary for those that cannot find answers

Not my quote.

Maybe there is more to life than answering questions.... i think so....

shouldn't this be here???

What You Need:

Microwave
Microwave safe dish at least 5-6 inches across (bigger is better)
Mini-marshmallows or chocalate
Ruler
Calculator

Try This:

Place the mini-marshmallows in the dish one layer thick.
If your microwave has a rotating platform, remove it. We don’t want the dish to rotate.
Put the dish in the microwave for 10 seconds.
When you remove the dish, you’ll notice only certain parts are melted. (Time may depend on the microwave – if all or none of your marshmallows melted, adjust the time.)
Measure the distance between melted marshmallows using your ruler. Measure in centimeters. This is half the wavelength of a microwave.
Look for a sticker on your microwave that tells you its frequency in Hertz (Hz). Most microwaves are around 2450 MHz. Note: MHz = 10^6 Hz
Use the following equation to find the speed of light: Speed of light = 2 x (distance between melted spots) x (frequency of microwave)
The actual speed of light is 3.00 x 10^10 cm/s. How close were you?

have the bag of mini marshmellows or chocolate bar
the calculator
the ruler
yet refuse having microwave ovens in the house
we do not cook food that way
or eat microwave popcorn

not wasting the dark chocolate bar in the freezer

so not doing the smores speed of light experiment

or have any clue exactly what your fighting over
really don't care right now merely slapping together this post

plus have better things for doing with my time

these arguments are getting all over the place worse than a melted mini marshmellows smores speed of light experiment while drinking beer & multiple fifths of bourbon

Well, microwaves are a type of light, so they will travel at about the same speed. I say about the same speed because the speed is determined by the refractive index of the material, which varies with wavelength. The speed of light in vacuum is 299,772,458 m/s. Both visible light and microwaves will travel at this speed in a vacuum. However, in air things will slow down a little bit. Here is a plot of the refractive index of air for optical wavelengths: http://refractiveindex.info/?shelf=othe ... age=Ciddor . At microwave wavelengths, it's pretty close to 1.00 as well, but I haven't been able to find any sources with a quick search that show any wavelength dependence at RF frequencies, or a more accurate figure without also plugging in numbers for temperature and humidity. However, the slowdown in air is very small compared to vacuum, and it's very similar between microwave and visible light. Other materials are another matter, though. For water, there is a very significant difference between visible light and RF - at visible wavelengths it's around 1.33, while at RF it's more like 8.9.
