The results of an experiment with pulse current heating of high purity iron are presented: temperature dependences of the specific energy input and specific heat up to 4000 K. The specific heat of the liquid iron is shown to be constant Cp ≈ 0.9 J/(g K) at both normal and high (up to 10 kbar) pressure.
