    can a molten metal conduct electricity ?
    i am asking that because as i know for conducting elecricity we need free electrons ( not neccessary moving free electrons) and on molten the bond is loosened only , not broken which means still there is free electrons..........
    So .........

    Yep. In a general sense a molten metal will conduct electricity. You can actually also conduct electricty with an aqueous solution of dissolved ions. So, just because it's a liquid doesn't mean it can't work.
