Actuate is a verb that means to put into action or motion.

The Latin word actus (OCK toos) meaning ‘a doing’ is parent to many English words including act, actor, actual and activate, a word similar to our word of the day. It’s often used to describe the act of putting machinery into motion.

I think the copy machine is broken. When I tried to actuate it, it didn’t do anything.
