Intake Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
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.

Intake is usually the first step taken by a worker when a client seeks help.  Intake is a process whereby a request for service is made by or for a person and it is then determined whether and what kind of service is to be provided.  The social worker attempts to gather initial information from the client in order to determine what assistance is needed, and whether the agency and worker is the appropriate provider.
