What is wrong with your hot water tank if it isn't heating water elements very well?
Does a wire in an electrical cord of an electrical kettle have a higher or lower resistance than the heating element inside the kettle?
The wire in the cord has much lower resistance than the heating element. The heating element is a resistive or resistance heating element. Resistance in the quality of a substance or material that causes it to limit current flow, and it get heated up in the process. The heating element has all but the smallest fraction of the resistance in the circuit, so the heat, that thermal energy that get the water hot, is generated by the resistance of the heating element.

Why is The heating element in a kettle is at the bottom explain why this is best place?
If the heating element was at the top and the kettle was not full, then you would not be able to heat water because the element would not be in the water. Thus the only place for the element is at the bottom. However, hot water is also less heavy than cold water, this means that heated water rises to the top and having the element at the bottom means that the water being heated is circulated and this is more efficient.
