Curie Point

My experiment attempts to find what affects the ability to reach curie point for different pieces of ferromagnetic metal. Samples of ferromagnetic metal were suspended in a magnetic field, then heated using a micro-torch. The time it took samples to reach their curie point was recorded. The samples, their mass, their metallurgical content, and the time it took to reach curie point were compared.
