    Re: Electric or electical

    I am not a teacher.

    Electricity: the form of energy Ex.supply of electric current to a house

    Electric:work by or producing electricity. Ex.Electric generator
    Electrical:concerned with,operating by or producing electricity
    Ex.Electrical equipment

    In common usage there is not much difference between two words.

    Re: Electric or electical

    The question is
    What word is needed so it can function as an adjective?

    ______________ experiment


    'electrical' makes the most sense, but is still akward.
