Explain, why the current that makes the heater element very hot, only slightly warms the connecting wires leading to the heater?

Expert Answer:

Heating effect depends on the resistance, time and current in the conductor
Heater element is made up of high resistance and connecting wire has less resistance as compared to heater element
