### What is electrostatic potential?

Electrostatic potential is the electric level deciding the direction of flow of electric charges.

### Explain the concept of potential difference.

Potential difference is the difference between the potential of two points, determining the flow of electric charges.

### How is current produced in electric cells like a car battery?

Current is produced by the flow of both negatively and positively charged particles.

### In which direction does heat flow?

Heat flows from a body at higher temperature to a body at lower temperature.

### What happens when a dry cell is connected in a circuit?

When a dry cell is connected in a circuit, electrons flow from the negative terminal to the positive terminal, causing current to flow.

### Why is no current seen to flow in the bulb initially?

No current is seen initially because there is no potential difference to drive the flow of electrons in the circuit.

### What are the symbols used for the shells which accommodate the electrons in various atoms?

K, L, M, N, O, P, Q

### What is the symbol and ordinal number of the innermost shell?

K shell, 1st shell

2-7

N shell

M shell

### Which is the outermost shell of a hydrogen atom?

K shell
