Examples from texts

In the case of free-flowing powder, the containers shall be inclined, the borers inserted nearly horizontally with the slit downwards and withdrawn with the slit upwards.
Dans le cas de poudres plus fluides, les récipients doivent être inclinés, les sondes enfoncées presque horizontalement, avec la fente dirigée vers le bas et retirées avec la fente dirigée vers le haut.

There is a small slit in the middle of it, through which I thrust my head in cold or rainy weather; and I am thus covered to the ankles.
Au milieu se trouve une petite fente par laquelle je passe ma tête quand il fait froid ou quand il pleut, et je me trouve ainsi couvert jusqu'à la cheville.

This is easily verified by holding coloured glass between the sky and the slit of a small direct-vision spectroscope.
On peut s'en convaincre facilement en interposant entre le ciel et la fente d'un petit spectroscope à vision directe des verres colorés.

I stared at the darkness with widely opened eyes; perhaps I might discover a hole, a slit, a glimmer of light, but only sparks of fire flitted through that night, with rays that broadened and then faded away.
Peut-être apercevrais-je un trou, une fente, une goutte de lumière! Mais des étincelles de jeu passaient seules dans la nuit, des clartés rouges s'élargissaient et s'évanouissaient.

If the slit is perpendicular to the axis of the four balls of the radiator, the box is transpierced from a distance six to eight times greater than when the slit is parallel to that axis.
Si la fente est perpendiculaire à l'axe des quatre boules du radiateur, la caisse se laisse traverser à une distance six à huit fois plus grande que par celle parallèle à cet axe.

" Oh! good Heavens," murmured Norine, who had turned quite pale, "I feared that he had slit his hand."

Electric waves appear to behave as if they were rigid and similar to a metal disc which passes without difficulty through a sufficiently large slit, but is stopped by an orifice smaller than its diameter.
Les ondes électriques semblent se comporter comme si elles . étaient rigides et analogues à un disque métallique qui peut passer sans difficulté à travers une fente suffisamment large, mais est arrêté par un orifice inférieur à son diamètre.

With a slit made by simply passing the edge of a razor across the metal, the outer box was still transpierced by the waves, but at one-sixth of the distance employed with the slit of 1 millimetre.
Avec une fente pratiquée, simplement en passant sur le métal le tranchant d'un rasoir, la boite extérieure est encore traversée, mais à une distance six fois moindre qu'avec la fente dé 1 millimètre.

The heads of other pillars could be descried around, and these the cleft seemed to be reaching, for little slits branched out in all directions.
D’autres piliers s’indiquaient aux alentours, que la lézarde paraissait aussi gagner, par des fendillements ramifiés en tous sens.

There must be likewise observed in electric waves the facility with which they pass through very narrow slits while square openings large enough for the insertion of a finger will not allow them to pass.
Il faut également noter pour les ondes électriques la facilité avec laquelle elles traversent les fentes très étroites, alors qu,e des ouvertures carrées assez grandes pour recevoir le doigt ne les laissent pas passer.

It will be remarked, however, in the case of electric waves, that the slits exercise an influence which is not produced in the case of static electricity.
On remarquera cependant, dans le cas des ondes électriques, que les fentes exercent une influence qu'elles ne produisent pas dans le cas de l'électricité statique.
