Samuel Johnson's Dictionary
Etymology: from electrum.
By electrick bodies do I conceive not such only as take up light bodies, in which number the ancients only placed jett and amber; but such as, conveniently placed, attract all bodies palpable. Thomas Browne, Vulgar Errours, b. ii. c. 4.
An electrick body can by friction emit an exhalation so subtile, and yet so potent, as by its emission to cause no sensible diminution of the weight of the electrick body, and to be expanded through a sphere, whose diameter is above two feet, and yet to be able to carry up lead, copper, or leaf-gold, at the distance of above a foot from the electrick body. Newton.
If that attraction were not rather electrical than magnetical, it was wonderous what Helmont delivereth concerning a glass, wherein the magistery of loadstone was prepared, which retained an attractive quality. Thomas Browne, Vulgar Errours.
If a piece of white paper, or a white cloath, or the end of one’s finger, be held at about a quarter of an inch from the glass, the electrick vapour, excited by friction, will, by dashing against the white paper, cloth, or finger, be put into such an agitation as to emit light. Isaac Newton, Opt.
pertaining to electricity; consisting of, containing, derived from, or produced by, electricity; as, electric power or virtue; an electric jar; electric effects; an electric spark
capable of occasioning the phenomena of electricity; as, an electric or electrical machine or substance
electrifying; thrilling; magnetic
Etymology: [L. electrum amber, a mixed metal, Gr. 'h`lektron; akin to 'hle`ktwr the beaming sun, cf. Skr. arc to beam, shine: cf. F. lectrique. The name came from the production of electricity by the friction of amber.]
The electrical system is working efficiently.
