My son has often heated macaroni by putting it on a
plate in a microwave oven. He has also cooked popcorn
in the microwave by putting in a pre-packaged bag.
Recently he changed the popcorn procedure by putting a
plate under the bag. At the point where the popping was
nearly complete the plate shattered. Not into a few
large pieces, but lots of small ones, none more than 5
per cent of the original size.

What happened to cause the plate to shatter?
