Can You Burn Metal?

Can You Burn Metal?

You know metal can get really hot, and you probably know that it can melt. But can it burn? Hank shows you how you can burn a hunk of metal like you’re some kinda superhero (just be careful, please), and he explains how, in chemistry, “burning” means even more than you thought.
