Definitions for "Penetration"
number of cards the dealer deals out before shuffling.
The percent of decks that are used in a game of blackjack. For example, if two decks are cut off and not used in an eight deck game, the penetration would be 6/8 = 75%, meaning 75% of the decks are used. Never play when there is less than 70% penetration. The higher the penetration, the better.
A measure (usually in percentages) of how deeply the dealer goes into the deck or shoe before he shuffles the cards.

In cable, the proportion of homes subscribing to cable, measured as a percentage of the total number of TV households in a specific area.
Much the same as incidence, but usually applied to households, whereas incidence usually refers to people: e.g. "the penetration of television is 90% of households" but "the incidence of AIDS is 1% of people." Also called Saturation.
Movement of a chemical through porous materials, seams, pinholes or other imperfections in a glove material on a non-molecular level.
Change of appearance of the face material due to movement of one or more components from the adhesive or the labeled surface. Bleed through, migration.
Applies to any movement of adhesive or ink into the surface of the material. May prove necessary to surface coat the material to avoid this.

Any object that projects through the surface of the roof.
A projection through the roof, e.g. vent pipe, chimney or rooflight.

Keywords:  enemy, defense, attack, opponet, pincer
an attack that penetrates into enemy territory
an attack on the enemy's front by driving a wedge into it or piercing it completely
Movement of defensive linemen across the line of scrimmage and into the offensive backfield. Good penetration into the backfield can disrupt many plays before they have the chance to get started.
the degree to which a technology has been adopted by a community. Teledensity is a measure of the penetration of telephone services.
Drilling penetration rate measured in metres. Often referred to as ROP (Rate of Penetration).
A measurement of access to telecommunications, normally calculated by dividing the number of subscribers to a particular service by the population and multiplying by 100. Also referred to as teledensity (for fixed-line networks) or mobile density (for cellular ones).
Gaining access to computers or networks by bypassing security programs and passwords.
The successful unauthorized access to an automated system.
Intrusion, Trespassing, Unauthorised entry into a system. Merely contacting system or using a key board to enter a password is not penetration, but gaining access to the contents of the data files by these or other means does constitute Penetration. Penetration Testing, is the execution of a testing plan, the sole purpose of which, is to attempt to hack into a system using known tools and techniques.

The ratio of the amount of pollutants leaving an air pollution control device versus the amount of pollutants entering the device.
A measure, in percent, of the material passing through a filter. Mathematically penetration is 100 - Efficency (percent). If a filter is 98% efficient, its penetration is 2% (100 - 98). Penetration is used to measure the performance of very high efficiency filters.
Term used to indicate the ability of a particular radio frequency to pass through non-metallic materials. Low frequency tagging systems are said to have good penetrative properties as their transponders can be read when behind or encased in other materials. Microwave tagging systems, while having greater read ranges, have poor penetrating properties.
the action of passing through
Acuteness; insight; sharp discoverment; sagacity; as, a person of singular penetration.
NULLWhen a stem of a piece splits into two, crosses over and loops through itself, rejoining the primary stem at separate junctures
Compare with shielding. Electrons in penetrating orbitals can reach the nucleus. The n and quantum numbers determine how well an orbital penetrates. Lower n and lower values mean better penetration. A low n value means the orbital is small. A low value means the orbital has fewer nuclear nodes (planes that pass through the nucleus where the probability of locating the electron is zero). In order of decreasing penetration, the subshells are s p d f. A 1s orbital penetrates better than a 2s orbital.
Equivalent to reach or cumulative audience: that is, the number of different people who use a service, buy a product, or see a program. Saturation and incidence also have much the same meaning.
The act of reaching across and breaking the plane of the net during blocking.
