Whats the difference between an eagle and a hawk?

I know this question sounds a little stupid, but can anyone explain to me the difference?

True hawks are built for manoeuvrability, speed and agile hunting (short wings, long tail, long legs).

Eagles are built for stamina and power - longer, squarer wings and generally more powerful build.

Eagles are a subset of hawks.

I could have but I wanted for people to have a chance to get a, "Best Answer" or show what they know.
Have you seen the number of questions posted which could be trivially answered either with a Web search or by reading a dictionary/encyclopedia?  When you post a question that looks like it is part of that crowd, you're more likely to get a "JFGI" answer.
I have, and its truly awful.
