radient floor heating question

I have a grid of copper piping in my concrete slab that has never been used. It came with the house. All you can see is two open-ended pipes sticking out of the concrete in a closet. I use a wood stove for heat. Does anyone think I could put a coil of copper pipe on the back of my wood stove, hook up one end to each pipe and the air would get superhot and passively flow through the slab? Or would I need to pump it somehow? Don't want to use water I'm afraid of leaks. Thanks

Nope. You would need to circulate liquid to have enough heat transfer an to keep the copper from melting from the intense heat.
