    استعمال واستخدام both mean ( use )
    استخدام = estekhdam
    استعمال = estee'mal
    ..
    Examples:
    عليك استعمال هذا المنتج = u should use this product
    عليك استخدام هذا المنتج = u should use this product

    ...
    but i think sometimes when i say to some one استعمل هذا الشي it means use it but استخدم هذا الشي it may means apply it and use it .. which all means the same ofcourse

    ..
    as i read about it, both means the same but in Fus'ha it differs .. check this website:

    ...
    فالاستخدام يأتي في كلامهم بمعنى الخادم الذي يقضي لك حوائجك الشخصية ، بينما الاستعمال يأتي بمعنى العامل الذي ينوب عنك ويشرف على جماعة من الناس ..

    Translation: الاستخدام means a server .. استخدمت فلاناً means I used someone as a server to HELP me do something.
    But استعمال means you hired someone to do your work INSTEAD of you.. استعملت فلاناً
