  • In <em>geology</em>, the penetration of a rock by a molten magma.
  • The act of injecting or throwing in; the act of forcing in, as a fluid into a passage, cavity, or substance of loose texture: as, the <em>injection</em> of a drug by means of a syringe; the <em>injection</em> of cold water into a steam-condenser to produce a vacuum.
  • In <em>anatomy</em>, the act of injecting a body for dissection; the process of filling the vessels or other cavities of a body, or some part of a body, with a preservative, coloring, or other fluid.
  • Specifically, in <em>medicine</em>, the giving of an enema; also, the enema given.
  • That which is injected, as a fluid; specifically, any substance or preparation forced into an animal body to preserve it, display it, or otherwise fit it for dissection or other examination.
  • The state of being hyperemic or bloodshot: as, the <em>injection</em> of the conjunctiva of an inflamed eye.

  • The act of injecting or throwing in; -- applied particularly to the forcible insertion of a liquid or gas, by means of a syringe, pump, etc.

  • None
  • The act or process of filling vessels, cavities, or tissues with a fluid or other substance.
  • A specimen prepared by injection.
  • None
  • The act of throwing cold water into a condenser to produce a vacuum.
  • The cold water thrown into a condenser.
  • the cock or valve through which cold water is admitted into a condenser.
  • None
  • See under <er>Condenser</er>.
  • the pipe through which cold water is through into the condenser of a steam engine.
  • a method of inserting fuel into internal-combustion engines by directly forcing the liquid fuel into the combustion chamber at an appropriate point in the piston cycle; in contrast to <contr>carburetion</contr>, in which an air-fuel mixture is drawn in by the downward stroke of the piston.
  • The act of <xref>injecting</xref>, or something that is <xref>injected</xref>.
  • Something injected <xref>subcutaneously</xref>, <xref>intravenously</xref>, or <xref>intramuscularly</xref> by use of a <xref>syringe</xref> and a <xref>needle</xref>.
  • A <xref>function</xref> that maps distinct x in the <xref>domain</xref> to distinct y in the <xref>codomain</xref>; formally, a f: X → Y such that f(a) = f(b) implies a = b for any a, b in the <xref>domain</xref>.
  • A <xref>relation</xref> on sets (X,Y) that associates each element of Y with at most one element of X.
  • The addition of <xref>money</xref> to someone, or to a business.
  • The <xref>insertion</xref> of program <xref>code</xref> into an <xref>application</xref>, <xref>URL</xref>, <xref>hardware</xref>, etc.
  • A <xref>specimen</xref> prepared by injection.
  • The act of throwing <xref>cold</xref> <xref>water</xref> into a <xref>condenser</xref> to produce a <xref>vacuum</xref>.
  • The cold water thrown into a condenser to produce a vacuum.
  • the act of putting a liquid into the body by means of a syringe
  • any solution that is injected (as into the skin)
  • the forceful insertion of a substance under pressure
