Definitions for "Shock"
A sudden depression of the vital forces of the entire body, or of a port of it, marking some profound impression produced upon the nervous system, as by severe injury, overpowering emotion, or the like.
an acute impairment of vital functions following a traumatic experience (ex. inability to speak or move, limbs go weak, loss of control over bodily functions, crying, increased heart rate, etc.)
The body's reaction to severe loss of blood or sudden injury -- a profound depression of the vital processes, including blood pressure. When a person goes into shock, this quick drop in blood pressure robs organs and tissues of blood and oxygen.

A sudden agitation of the mind or feelings; a sensation of pleasure or pain caused by something unexpected or overpowering; also, a sudden agitating or overpowering event.

an oxidizer tat "burns off" the organic wastes which case cloudiness and algae. It is a generic term for a chemical used to oxidize organic wastes.
refers to the application of large quantities of chlorine (superchlorination), non-chlorine shock or hydrogen peroxide. Typically 5-10 times the normal dose is used, based upon actual conditions and needs. The purpose of this large dose is to break down (breakpoint chlorination, in the case of chlorine) the combined chlorine, organic waste and contamination and re-establish a positive level of Free Chlorine. Shocking must be repeated, until such time as a stable Free Chlorine reading can be achieved, for at least a few hours. Make sure that a Free Chlorine capable test kit is being used, in order to know when breakpoint chlorination has been achieved.
The addition of large quantities of oxidizer(s) to destroy suntan lotion, cosmetics, perspiration, combined chlorine, and other undesirable compounds.
To give a shock to; to cause to shake or waver; hence, to strike against suddenly; to encounter with violence.
To strike with surprise, terror, horror, or disgust; to cause to recoil; as, his violence shocked his associates.

dampens (smooths out) a movement or a vibration. The spring, not the shock absorber, absorbs road shocks. How it works: the shock body is filled with oil. The shaft has a piston attached to the end inside the shock body that controls how fast or slow it moves through the oil. By altering the internal valving, you can achieve the optimum performance of your shock for its application. As the piston moves up and down in the shock body, this creates heat. By pressurizing the shock with nitrogen, this suppresses the tendency of oil to cavitate, or foam, which will hinder shock performance. Here is a diagram of the shock components, and below is a list of what some of these parts do.
a dampening device that reduces that bounce so it bounces only a few times
a hydraulic device that dampens or resists chassis movement by passing fluid (oil) through a set of orifices and valved passages
