Nylon is classical. Softer on fingers. Usually on a smaller bodied guitar with a wider neck. Steel strings are on the usual, common guitar. Strings are thinner.

Can you use a normal guitar string with an electric guitar?

By normal I assume you mean a string made of Nylon. (looks like any other plastic) There are two general types of string - Nylon and Steel (which are usually not made of actual steel) Electric guitars usually use steel strings, and acoustic guitars use both nylon and steel. (although not at the same time - the metal-like strings on a nylon stringed guitar are wire wrapped nylon thread) As for using 'normal' Nylon strings on an electric guitar, I would not advise it. The steel strings used on guitars have a much higher tension than that of a nylon string. Electric guitars and Acoustic guitars with steel strings have a steel bar in their neck to stop them bending under the tension of the steel strings. Putting a low tension Nylon string on an electric guitar would not damage the guitar at all, but it would probably snap the string after a short time of playing, if not immediatly. You could give it a try though. Also, you would not hear any sound come through an amplifier unless you put a metal coating on the Nylon, as the pickups in an electric guitar only channel a sound signal when something magnetic passes over them.
