Many texts i've come across use "electrical energy" and "electricity" interchangeably. Some online dictionaries also state "electricity" and "electrical energy" as synonyms. Are they really the same? In the topic called energy, my friend wrote "Electrical energy is the energy possessed by electricity". I pointed out that this definition is not accurate, that it should be "Electrical energy is the energy due to the flow of charged particles". Which is correct (if any)? A check with an oxford dictionary that i have: Electrical energy: a form of energy related to the position of an electric charge in an electric field Electricity: any effect resulting from the existence of stationary or moving electric charges. Now i'm even more confused! Pls help!
