If you want a classic example of the systems aspect of penetration, shoot a common target arrow out of a common 60# hunting bow into a construction sandbag.

The arrow will penetrate all the way through to the point that fully half the arrow comes out of the sandbag's other side.

Fire a a 44Mag (or even a 30-06) into that same sandbag and it goes nowhere.
