WHAT DOES INTAKE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

intake

Intake

An intake, or especially for aircraft inlet, is an air intake for an engine. Because the modern internal combustion engine is in essence a powerful air pump, like the exhaust system on an engine, the intake must be carefully engineered and tuned to provide the greatest efficiency and power. An ideal intake system should increase the velocity of the air until it travels into the combustion chamber, while minimizing turbulence and restriction of flow.

Definition of intake in the English dictionary

The first definition of intake in the dictionary is a thing or a quantity taken in. Other definition of intake is the act of taking in. Intake is also the opening through which fluid enters a duct or channel, esp the air inlet of a jet engine.
