Heating elements in a water tank

Hello,

I have this problem that I am struggling with.

I have a heating element that is submerged in a water tank.
The temperature of the water in the tank starts at say 5C.
The temperature of the water flowing through the heating element is at 90C. I can also assume that the metal of the heating element is at 90C all the way along the heating element.

I want to see how much the water in the tank heats up by over an hour/day.

What properties do I need to measure?

The tank is capable of taking 300 litres.
The heating element is 1.5 m long and has a diameter of 22mm (therefore it has an area of 1.5 x 2 x pi x 0.011) =0.10362m^2

Any help would be massively appreciated!

James
