9V battery heating up instead of the heating element Answered
i am trying to make a heater out of nichrome wire. i have got a heating element (100 W) made specifically for 9V . but when i connected it to the battery, after few seconds of heating the element my battery heated up and i had to remove the connections.
what am i doing wrong
the heating element is connected to a stainless steel glass for heating 250-300 ml water to about 100 degree celcius.
