Definition of potency:
- capacity to produce strong physiological or chemical effects; " the toxin's potency"; " the strength of the drinks"
- The quality or state of being potent; physical or moral power; inherent strength; energy; ability to effect a purpose; capability; efficacy; influence.
- 1. Power, force, strength. 2. In homeopathy, ( a) the therapeutic efficacy of a drug as increased by succussion or trituration with alcohol or sugar of milk, respectively; ( b) the degree of dilution or attenuation of a drug by which its therapeutic efficacy is increased. There are two degrees or systems of potency, the decimal and the centesimal. In the decimal system one part of the crude drug is triturated with nine parts of sugar of milk to make the first decimal potency. To make the second decimal potency one part of the first potency is triturated with nine parts of sugar of milk; and so on. In the case of drugs of which tinctures can be made, one drop of the mother tincture is added to nine drops of alcohol ( in larger amounts, but in the same proportion) and the mixture is strongly shaken ( succussed) to make the first decimal dilution or potency; one drop of this succussed with nine drops of alcohol makes the second decimal dilution, and so on. The centesimal potencies are made in the same way, except that one grain or one drop is triturated or shaken with 99 grains or drops of the diluent to make the first centesimal potency; and one part of this again is mixed with 99 parts of the diluent to make the second centesimal potency. The centesimal potencies are indicated by numbers from 1 to 30 ( usually, though not always, the highest potency used); the decimal potencies are indicated by the signs 1x, 2X, 30X, etc.
- Power to influence.
- Physical or mental power.
- Physical or moral power; efficacy; influence.
Usage examples for potency
In his novels, " The Daughter of a Magnate" and " Whispering Smith," in such vivid and delightful short stories as " The Ghost at Point of Rocks," which appeared in Scribner's Magazine for August of 1907, Mr. Spearman has dramatized the pathos, the wit, the vast and marvellous spirit of enterprise, the desolation of isolated regions, the all- pervading potency and one may almost say intimacy of modern life made possible by the Arabian Nights' dream of wireless telegraphy, " soaring" cars, long- distance telephoning, and lightning express train service in cars that climb the mountains beyond the clouds, or dash through tunnels with ten thousand feet of mountains above them. Italy, the Magic Land by Lilian Whiting
Then imagination, the magician, lovely in weal but terrible in woe, began to weave his spell, and visions arose of dear loved ones agonising beyond the prison walls, to whom my heart yearned through the dividing space with an intense passion that seemed as though its potency might almost annihilate our barriers. Prisoner for Blasphemy by G. W. [George William] Foote
