please explain the difference between electric potential and potential difference.please elaborate the answer becuase i have little confusion regarding this topic.

Electric potential is that condition which determines the direction of flow of charge from one point to another. It is measured as the work done in bringing a unit positive charge from infinity to a point against the electric force.The electric potential at a point is potential energy per unit charge.
Potential difference is the amount of work done in taking a unit positive charge from one point to another point, that is between two points in an electric field.

- si unit of current
- in which way we can pass the current
- In electricity, when we are talking about charge is it only electrons that we are referring to?
- A charge of 5000 columbs flows through the electric circuit in 2.5 hrs calculate magnitude of current in ampere and milliampere
- 10 ampere of current flow s through a conductor assume current is due to flow of electrons find no of electrons crossing the area of cross-section per second if current flows for 1 hour find net flow of charge
- I did not understand the meaning of potential difference and its sub-topics
- what is the relation between potential difference,work done,charge moved
- calculate no of electrons constituting 1 columb of charge?
- find energy given to each columb of charge flowing/passing through 6volts battery?
- Why is the the negative terminal of the battery in a circuit don't repel the negatively charged electrons which are flowing in a circuit as per the direction of the current
