If I put a piece of iron or any metal in a fire will it stop conducting electricity, I mean not only during the time it is worm from the fire but also after it gets cold again?
If yes could you explain how so.
I know the atoms of a magnet are oriented in one direction and if heated they get oriented in different directions, that is how fire destroys a magnet.
But does anything happen with the atoms in a piece of iron if get heated, if it does what is it?
