This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
I think this may be closed for general reference, but they are synonyms mainly in American English, with mad being more colloquial than angry. I would never use mad in formal writing. In British English, mad exclusively means "insane" or "crazy," so it is not interchangeable with angry.
