Can heat be considered a form of stored (or potential) energy?Would such an interperation contradict the concept of heat as energy in the process of transfer because of temperature difference?

dear student,
Heat can’t objectively be stored energy within the science of thermodynamics.
heat is defined as the transfer of energy between two systems as a result of temperature difference only. Once energy is added to a system, the additional stored internal energy is not heat.
thank you
