(Greek: a suffix; pertaining to; of the nature of, like; in chemistry, it denotes a higher valence of the element than is expressed by -ous)
2. Charged with electricity; such as, an electric battery.
3. Containing, producing, arising from, or actuated by electricity, or designed to carry electricity and capable of doing it.
Examples are electric energy, electric lamp, electric eel, electric vehicle, and electric motor.4. Carrying electricity, or designed to carry electricity.
5. Run by electricity; for example a musical instrument like an electric guitar, producing sounds electronically through a speaker.
Electric, in many cases is used interchangeably with electrical, and it is often restricted to the description of particular devices or to concepts relating to the flow of electric current; such as, an electric fire or an electric charge.
2. A process that functions with the force of electricity in motion.
3. Relating to electrodynamics or the science that studies electrical forces (electrical current and magnetism) in interaction.
2. A reference to one of the four types of electrokinetic effects:
- streaming potential
- sedimentation potential
2. Referring to electrolytes or the process in which the passage of an electric current through a solution or medium produces a chemical reaction.
3. A reference to the destruction of living tissue; especially, of hair roots, by means of an electric current applied with a needle-shaped electrode.
2. A reference to that branch of science and engineering which deal with the motion, emission, and behavior of currents of free electrons; especially, in vacuum, gas, or phototubes, and special conductors or semiconductors.
This is contrasted with electric, which refers to the flow of large currents in metal conductors.3. A reference to devices, circuits, or systems using the principle of electron flow through a conductor; for example, electronic control, electronic equipment, electronic instrument, and electronic circuit.
4. Using, or accessed through a computer or computer network; for example, internet electronic banking.
The term electronic is used to refer to equipment, such as television sets, computers, etc., in which the current is controlled by transistors, valves, and similar components and also to the components themselves.
2. Pertaining to any chemical process in which electrons are acquired from or shared with other molecules or ions.
3. Describing a substance with an electron deficiency.
4. Having an affinity for electrons whereby a bond is formed when an ion or molecule (the electrophilic agent) accepts a pair of electrons from a nucleophilic ion or molecule.
Such a device can indicate whether they are positive or negative as by the divergence of electrically charged strips of gold leaf.
When fitted with optical means for quantitative observation of the divergence, an electroscope serves as an electrometer.
2. Characterized by a stationary electric charge that builds up on an insulated object; such as, a capacitor or a thundercloud.
3. Referring to stationary electric charges, or produced or caused by static charges (electric charges at rest).
4. The effects produced by electrical charges or fields, alone, without interaction with magnetic influence.
2. The modified condition of a motor nerve under the influence of a constant galvanic current.
