Hello,
I requested to claim a section of a Scientific American about alternate current condensers. BUT as I was practicing, I came across an image or figure showing the electrical circuit? There is a figure description but it doesn't say something like "Figure 1" to clue the listener into what you're describing.
Here is what I mean: https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/13443/pg13443-images.html#elec1

Do I just go on reading from the paragraph directly to the figure caption like "and increases the pressure....T1 and T2 are..." or should I say "figure description" or something to that effect before describing the figure?

Hope this question makes sense...Thank you in advance!

Double check with the BC of the project to be sure, but I'd guess you skip the figure and the figure caption altogether.
