Principal means main, primary, key, leader, headmaster, etc.
Principle means rule, law, code, standard, notion, etc.

Coconut was the principal ingredient in that recipe.
The Mayor arranged a meeting for all the principals in town.
He never compromises on his principles.
Both these devices work on the same principle.
