Can steel wool be used to seal a hole around a radiator pipe?
I have sealed holes around cables and pipes with steel wool . . . it tends to discourage gnawing; however, if it's in a moist location, it will rust like crazy. I now use fiberglas insulation for the same purpose.

It is to drain residual liquid left in piping.
If it is a sewer gas, you can detect it with a combustable gas detector.
Yeah if you want splinters up your asss everytime you take a bath. . Let's presume that you plan to rinse all those splinters down the drain... . Yes, you can. HOWEVER, fibe…rglass tubs will be permanently dulled by the steel wool. Breaking the shine of the gel coat is the first step in repainting a fiberglass tub. . If you do use steel wool on your fiberglass tub, you should follow that up with decreasing grit size of wet/dry sandpaper. Stop in at your local automotive parts store or a body shop for the low-down on restoring the finish. Also, there are several grades of steel wool. The coarser the steel wool, the more polishing you'll need to do to restore the finish. The gel coat and paint may not be thick enough to restore if you go at it with the really coarse stuff. . If you have a cast iron tub with an enamel finish, it will easily survive a good scrubbing with steel wool. . If you need to get aggressive with some obstinate soap scum, there are a number of cleaners on the market that will do the job. You can even try painting the area with dishwashing detergent and laying plastic wrap over it over night to let it work without drying out. Save your energy for something more entertaining.

I think they use frequency modulated sound waves rather than electromagnetic waves as to be honest i cant think of an em wave that would work.
No! Steel is a very bad choice for plumbing, as it rusts and can poison your water. PVC, copper, or clay pipes are recommended for plumbing.
We use a die of the proper size to cut threads on steel pipe. This pipe die can be turned by hand, or by machine. There are examples of this process in any good hardware or …large home improvement store. They have pipe threaders on the premises, and they can thread most common pipe stock.
Stainless steel pipe threads are prone to leaking as well as seizing or gulling of the threads. After many years of experience and pressure testing systems up to 7700 PSI I ha…ve found this works best. Apply UNASCO MX-68 Silver Stainless Steel Pipe Thread Sealing Tape to the threads (4-5) wraps is sufficient for smaller pipes. Generally found that covering all the threads 2 layers deep works well. Step 2 On top of the Teflon apply a layer of SWAK thread sealing compound. Be sure to cover all around the pipe from the starting thread to the half way point of the entire length of thread. Step 3 Tighten away
If you have a blown head gasket. you pour it in the radiator and it's suppose to fix your blown head gasket. I've never used it so i don't know if it actually works
For a temporary repair, yes and use as directed.

Steel wool will burn. Try a section cut rom a copper Chore-Boy potscrubber.
what would happen if a large piece of steel wool was used? Amuch smaller piece
