General Chemistry Glossary
(T) Compare with absorbance .The transmittance is the fraction of radiant intensity transmitted by a sample,T = I/I0 where T is the transmittance and I, I0 are the radiant intensity of the radiation after and before passing through the sample. The percent transmittance is the transmittance times 100%.

EIA Energy Glossary
The movement or transfer of electric energy over an interconnected group of lines and associated equipment between points of supply and points at which it is transformed for delivery to consumers or is delivered to other electric systems. Transmission is considered to end when the energy is transformed for distribution to the consumer.

Oil and Gas Field Glossary
The transport of large quantities of gas at high pressures, often through national or regional transmission systems. From the latter, gas is transferred into local distribution centres, for supply to customers, at lower pressures.
Energy Glossary
Transporting bulk power over long distances.
Dictionary of Automotive Terms
A device (full of gears) that uses gearing or torque conversion to effect a change in the ratio between engine rpm and driving wheel rpm. When engine rpm goes up in relation to wheel rpm, more torque but less speed is produced. A reduction in engine rpm in relation to wheel rpm produces a higher road speed but delivers less torque to the driving wheels. Also see auxiliary transmission , automatic transmission , five-speed transmission , infinitely variable transmission , manual transmission , progressive transmission , standard transmission , and synchromesh transmission .
Fiber Optics, Optical Networking Terms
The sending of optical signals through optical fibers, and associated effects and phenomena.

Glossary of HIV/AIDS-Related Terms
In the context of HIV disease: HIV is spread most commonly by sexual contact with an infected partner. The virus can enter the body through the mucosal lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or, rarely, the mouth during sex. The likelihood of transmission is increased by factors that may damage these linings, especially other sexually transmitted diseases that cause ulcers or inflammation. HIV also is spread through contact with infected blood, most often by the sharing of drug needles or syringes contaminated with minute quantities of blood containing the virus. Children can contract HIV from their infected mothers during either pregnancy or birth, or postnatally, through breast-feeding. In developed countries, HIV is now only rarely transmitted by transfusion of blood or blood products because of screening measures.
ATIS
Glossary of HIV/AIDS Terms
The passing of HIV through blood, semen, vaginal secretions or breast milk from an infected individual to another person. These four are the only body fluids known to transmit HIV (although a small amount of HIV might be in saliva, it is not thought to transmit HIV).
