Can I attach a drill bit that drills through concrete to a regular electric drill?

And if yes, how is the bit called? Hammer drill bit?

    You could, but you won't have the added advantage of a "hammer/drill". This electric/power drill has the punch of a jackhammer drill and rotating at the same time.

    giving you a more positive and quicker result, without wearing out your bit quickly. If you had a number of holes to drill, the best bet would be to buy the roto drill I'm talking about, otherwise hopefully a friend/neighbor owns the correct drill. The drill bit is a masonry bit.

    Maybe a masonry drill bit?

    While you can put that masonry bit into an electric drill, it won't do anything except overheat. You need a hammer drill as that pounds the drill downward at the same time. Kind of like hammering a chisel. You can get a hammer drill for the cost of a regular reversible variable speed drill with the addition of hammer drill for cheap. Concrete floors are the hardest to drill through. It works like a breeze. Regular drill just heats up the bit.

      The price of a hammer drill IS NOT the same as for a regular drill. You are THOROUGHLY confused at best.

    You need a masonry bit. It will work fine in your electric drill.

    The purpose of a hammer drill is ENTIRELY different than the purpose of a masonry bit, which is what you want to drill into MOST concrete and is normally used in a 'normal' drill.

    Just a plain masonry bit. Hammer drill bits are similar and would work about the same, but they cost more because of the materials they are made from. And yes, it will work with a regular drill, just more slowly than a hammer drill.

    You would buy a masonry drill bit. A hammer drill bit is made for a hammer drill and won't be good for a regular electric drill that has no hammer action. It's not the easiest drilling through concrete with a regular drill, but you deal with what you have if it's a small project.
