Electric or Electrical

 

 

The Conference has been called ‘The International Conference on Electric Contacts’ and ‘The International Conference on Electrical Contacts’ at different times down through the years - but which is correct?

 

According to IET and IEEE an object which is ‘Electric’, makes, uses or passes electricity such as a transistor or motor; whereas, an object which is ‘Electrical’ is only associated with electricity such as an electrical engineer. 

 

So, strictly speaking since contact materials and interfaces pass electricity, the Conference is properly entitled ‘The International Conference on Electric Contacts’ - but we all know what you mean if you happen to call it “The International Conference on Electrical Contacts”.
