Cellphone popcorn

If this is true, then we're all in some deep sh!t. Hopefully, it's just a silly prank...but if it is, it's not that funny, considering some people talk on their phones even 8 to 10 hours every day.

Comments for Cellphone popcorn

There could be a simple explanation...

Popcorn pops because the water in it turns to steam and a kernel is about 14% water. So, if we assume a kernel of popcorn weighs 1 gram, it has 0.13 grams of water. Heat that water from 30�C to 100�C would take:

(0.14g)*(100�C-3 to turn the water to steam requires he latent heat of vaporization, which is 2259J/g.

2259J*0.14g= 316J
for a total of 316J 41J = 357J.

Wattage = Joules/seconds. If it took about 5 seconds to turn the water in the popcorn kernel to steam, then the wattage required was:

357J/5sec = 71W assuming all power from the cell phone transmitter went into the kernel.

Cell phones typically have 0.75W-1W transmitters in them. With a 1W transmitter, it would take,

334J/1W = 334secs, if all power is transfered to the kernel.

Making any kind of arrangements or plans for after we have passed away or become incapacitated may seem uncomfortable or even morbid to many. Still I'm convinced that having a living will in place is the right thing to do, and it will make a horrible situation into a little less stressful and complicated one for you, your family, and the health care provider.
