Heat Energy

A form of energy that is transferred by a difference in temperature.Heat energy is the energy stored within atoms, that can be produced when the organism vibrates and causes friction. The amount of heat Energy in a given entity is measured by the amount of equivalent energy that would be required to heat the substance up by one degree Celsius.
