Best Answer: 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.
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.

tungsten bit,or titanium bit,
you might try a rechargeable drill,,using a cold water pot to periodically cool the thing off,no good using a cord electric for this,,zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzap,
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.
