More Information

Basically, these three definitions are made of the same meaning, "grabbing" something:
  • The general meaning is to hold something literally with your hand.
  • In an extended meaning, the targetting device does not literally "touch" the target, but still has a virtual "grasp" of it.
  • The slang expression used in chemistry might be regarded like the elements hold each other together.
