When you press a 6-9 volt battery if im correct, on the fine steel wool, it transmits energy through out the steel wool, heating it up, as seen in the gif. used in fire making kits, and for fun >:}

I thought everybody knew that a battery and steel wool were normal parts to a fire-making kit

If you use a sliver of steel wool and attach it to two wires then attach it to the speakers of cell phone... you should be able to figure out what you can do with it.

Very useful fire-making technique. You can get a similar effect with a AA battery and chewing gum wrapper.

**SILENCEnight rolled a random image posted in comment #2947228 at Friendly ** The steel wool conducts electricity which is stuck in the steel wool because of the lack of a grounder. Therefore the electrons bounce around, releasing energy in the form of fire.

what?, no. its much simpler than that, the resistance in the steel wool causes it to heat up and catch fire   
   
(also electrons wouldn't "bounce around" because of a lack of ground, they dissipate because of the inherent resistance, unless of course it was a super conductor, but thats another story)

I once put steel wool and batteries together in a drawer (I was like 5) and almost burnt the house down.
