    Microwaves101 created the topic: Penetration depth versus frequency for humans

    Can some one provide information on how far microwaves penetrate into people, versus frequency? Wikipedia has some limited info

    thanks

    It is not possible to give an unique answer, as the penetration depth depends on the type of tissue. You can refer to the site niremf.ifac.cnr.it/tissprop/ for an exhaustive list of available data. An on line calculator provides, for each type of tissue and frequency interval, both the electrical parameters and the penetration depth, namely the depth at which the field amplitude is attenuated 2.71 times.
