Electric vs Electrical
What is the difference between the stated words above?
Thanks in advance!
'Electric' can be both a noun or an adjective, but 'electrical' is an adjective only, so I'll discuss adjectives.
If noun to be modified uses electricity to operate, use 'electric'.
If the noun (usually a person) does not directly use electricity, then use 'electrical'.
'Electric' modifying a person usually has nothing to do with electricity, but describes a dynamic personality or action.
He was electric when he gave the speech.
