    I don't think there is much difference between the two. You can use them interchangeably.

    Taken literally, they r same.But 相互can be adjective,like 相互的指责/关心.

    they are the same, but there are some practical differences:
    we often use 互相帮助 more than 相互帮助
    but 相互理解 = 互相理解 are totally as often used as each other
    but if you say: 互相帮助,互相理解 is good
    to make it simple, you can just get rid of '相互' in your dictionary



    There's a slight difference. If you want to explain a theory, especially in the field of physics, "相互” is the only choice. The word "interaction" should be translated into "相互作用“. Therefore, ”相互“ sounds more professional and more formal than "互相”.

    相互 <-> 互相 (interchangeable)
