electrical deals with motors,transformers and electrical power
electronics deals with maily R L C and diodes,transistors
elecrical also deals with R L C

Electrical engineering typically deals with generation, transmission, distribution of electricity and electrical machines in depth. Electronics engineering is mostly about circuits and applications of electricity in at smaller magnitude.

motameeth - do you have further questions or your query has been answered?

An Induction Motor would be an induction machine. Please refer to the textbooks for details on how Induction motor works and how it's built up.

Electrical is as well about circuits. The differentiating factor is, electronics or better words are, microelectronics is all about SEMICONDUCTOR devices and their applications. That semiconductor word is most important as thats what seperated electronics from electrical. So anything involving semiconductor is electronics. If you use it on high voltages, you may notice its still electronics, but power electronics. Generally theres a misconception that if you work on high voltages its electrical, its not!

That is correct. I only talked in a much broader perspective. I'm not sure if electronics engineers get to study HV lines and machines. I might be wrong.

Electronics has a branch called power electronics which deals completely with HV But in the whole some end it is just a small piece I would say

In a simple way-
Electrical deals upon the current carrying in a Conductor while Electronics deals upon the current carrying in a semiconductor.

Then is SCR carrying current in Semi conductors and Aluminium is not a semi conductor is used in Schottky diode

I do accept all the above replies from various "crazy engineers" ok.
Electrical things use POWER to start and to run them
where as
Electronics uses VOLTAGE majorly.
Examples:
1.Computer or Mobile is an ELECTRONIC DEVICE.
Computer may given power to start but in SMPS we will be finding Step-down transformers to reduce for required and vairous converters used to get voltage to be used by various components in computer.
2.Transformer or Generator is an ELECTRICAL DEVICE.

Two theory describes current flow. The CONVENTIONAL theory commonly used for automotive systems says that current flows from +ve to -ve. i.e the excess electrons from an area of high potential flows to an area of low potential.

The second is the ELECTRON theory basically used in electronics says that current flows from -ve to +ve.
i.e excess electrons cause an area of -ve potential and flows towards an area lacking electrons, an area of +ve potential to balance the charge.
