Basically mac is short for macintosh, which was the first most popular PC Apple created with the graphical interface (i.e. mac, mac plus, the SE, and the SE/30).
PC is a general statemnet of personel computer. So both Apples and wintel boxes are PCs.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

... However, in the social sense of the words "Mac" and "PC"... people tend to view them as seperate entities.
Mac refers to Apple Computers while PC tends to refer to Windows computers... and of course the 3rd wheel being Linux boxes.
