    Question What are the differences between "Electric","Electrical"and"Electronic"?

    As posted.
    Please give me more details as possible, cause this seems to be a question that has been unsettled when I asked last time.

    If there are more related ones, please let me know. Thanks.

    electric or electrical?
    Electric is more commonly used than electrical to describe a device that works by electricity or is involved in producing or carrying electricity: an electric oven; an electric socket.Electrical is applied to more general things and to areas of study or activity that are concerned with electricity: electrical appliances;electrical engineering.Electric is the choice in the figurative meaning "tense or excited": The atmosphere at the meeting was electric.Microsoft® Encarta® 2006. © 1993-2005 Microsoft Corporation.
