Yesterday, in a cafeteria, I decided to hard boil
an egg in a microwave oven (which I never tried hitherto),
a minimum size unit. I half filled a standard paper
coffee cup with water, sufficient to immerse the egg.
Timer set for 3 min.

I left for a few minutes. Upon return, a disaster of
Hurricane Sandy magnitude! Door open, cup split,
and a HOLE in the oven floor!

Qu pasa, amigos? I seek an explanation, as solution
of the Maxwell eqs., modified for quantum field theory,
with boundary conditions, accounting for the field
potentials and molecular dynamics of egg chemistry.

Can not explain it,but have been told never to put an egg in the shell ,
hard boiled or not in the microwave.

even out of its shell it's risky.

you've got a spheroid shell that can withstand significant pressure
albumen which has interesting properties when cooked and seems undergo
violent composition when overheated

next time boil the water, then place the egg in it and leave it
outside of the microwave.

Always perforate the egg shell with a needle before attempting to cook
it in a microwave !

Better yet - never, under any circumstances, put an in-the-shell egg
into a microwave. You can poke all the holes in it you like, it'll make
very little difference. Since the hole is going to "expose" the white,
that's pretty near a guarantee that's where it will cook first, and
thereby seal the hole. Once that happens, the steam buildup will cause a
rather nice explosion - PERHAPS enough to do *SOME* of what the OP
claimed, though I have my doubts. I've seen bullets fired at old
microwave ovens that didn't manage to punch through the cooking cavity.
Blowing the door open, I can see. Splitting the cup is trivial - a
couple kernels of popcorn could do that. Blowing a hole in the metal...
I ain't buying that no matter how low the price. Lets be kind and say
that I suspect someone is employing a bit of exaggeration for dramatic
effect.

Why is that? I do that all the time cooking eggs for my dogs. Nothing bad
has happened so far.

dunno for sure why, just had to deal with the mess.

I B'LEVE that after it's solid the white forms a closed cell gel,
if you get that hot enough the trapped water makes enough pressure to
rupture the gel structure and it and it flash boils in some sort of
chain reaction.

Whatever, it goes "bang" and knocks the ceiling of the oven off its
mounting clips.

My first few MOs were freebies because the dielectric window on the end of
the waveguide had arced - I just removed the dielectric and used them.

In my case the exploding egg trick was deliberate - I wanted to see it for
myself.

A chunk of exploded egg landed in the end of the waveguide and the overload
caused shorted turns on the mains transformer.

You can superheat water in a microwave - which tends to erupt violently when
you drop something in it.

Maybe someone can try that with an egg and let me know what happens.

You can make very frothy coffee that way - but there's only 1/3 cup left
after its erupted.
