Usage examples for intake
This hypothesis assumes that a ship has taken in at the bow exactly the same amount of water as at the stern, at exactly the same distance from the center of gravity; this, of course, is impossible; besides the holes through which the water is pouring in must also be at precisely the same level, or else the water pressure would be greater at one end than at the other, and the slightest alteration of level would occasion a greater intake of water and upset the equilibrium of the boat. – The Journal of Submarine Commander von Forstner by Georg-GÃ¼nther von Forstner Commentator: John Hays, Jr. Hammond
