Can someone assist me? I have a general idea about this but I need it explained to me for a class project.

I know that iron will rapidly oxidize in LOX , my question is will / why will it melt?

Oxidising creates heat,so.. what will happen.

So, even though LOX is a cryogenic substance, the oxidation that occurs is rapid enough to melt hot iron?
