I'm thinking about adding some animations in Mathematica to my last Physics assignment and I don't quite know where to start.

Id like to make somthing like this image:

enter image description here

which I made using PowerPoint and IguanaTeX, and I'd like to control the number of blue dots using Manipulate[]. I mean, I have an expression which gives me the number of blue dots that should appear in any of the two levels, so I'd like to make something using Manipulate in order to be able to see how the number of blue dots in each level changes as I change the parameters of my expression.

I have the background image (I can erase the blue dots in the one I am showing you) but I don't know how to control the blue dots.

Could you give me some hints? Thank you for your help!

prolog = Graphics[{Join[{Black, Arrow[{{-1, 0}, {-1, 5}}], Orange, 
 Line[{{{0, 2}, {10, 2}}, {{0, 0}, {10, 0}}}], Green}, 
Table[Arrow[{{i, 3}, {i, 5}}], {i, 7, 9}]]}];
dots[n_Integer] :=
Graphics[{Blue, Table[Disk[{4 + i, 2}, 0.1], {i, n}]}];
Manipulate[Show[{prolog, dots[n]}], {n, 1, 5, 1}]
