electron injection
1. The release of electrons from one solid material into another solid material.
2. The emission of electrons from one solid into another solid.
3. The process of injecting a beam of electrons with an electron gun into the vacuum chamber of a mass spectrometer, betatron, or other large electron accelerator.
4. The procedure used in forcing a beam of electrons into any large electron accelerator; such as, a beatatron by using an electron gun.
electronic fuel injection
1. The forced injection of fuel under pressure into an automobile or truck engine, using electronic control.
2. A system which injects fuel into an engine and includes an electronic control unit to time and meter or measure the flow.

Fuel is delivered in intermittent pulses by the opening and closing of solenoid-controlled injectors.

lethal injection (s) (noun), lethal injections (pl)
The forceful insertion of a substance into a body: A lethal injection might be administered in order to perform euthanasia or a painless death for an individual who is suffering from a terminal illness or an incurable condition.

Another reason for using a lethal injection is to complete a process of execution for capital punishment when someone has been sentenced by a court of law with a death penalty.

On May 15, 2015; a U.S. jury Sentenced Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death by lethal injection.

Three people were killed and 260 were injured when Tsarnaev and his brother placed bombs at the finishing line of the Boston Marathon in 2013.

The convicted Boston bomber is likely to be moved to a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, to await execution.

Massachusetts ended the death penalty in 1984, but Tsarnaev was tried on federal charges and so it is possible that he will be legally executed.

fuel injection, electronic fuel injection
A fuel delivery system whereby gasoline is pumped to one or more fuel injectors under high pressure.

The fuel injectors are valves that, at the appropriate times, open to allow fuel to be sprayed or atomized into a throttle bore or into the intake manifold ports.

The fuel injectors are usually solenoid operated valves under the control of the vehicle's on-board computer resulting in "electronic fuel injection".

The fuel efficiency of fuel injection systems is less temperature-dependent than carburetor systems. Diesel engines always use injectors.
