Capsule IV focuses on used equipment, while Capsule V explores methods of placing equipment in a shop space. Learning activities include answering questions, listing, analyzing needs and guarantees, identifying specifications, comparing use and cost, charting, using catalogs, identifying criteria, and measuring and mapping.
