# Figure environment not compiling onto pdf [closed]

I'm trying to get the following image to show up in my document:

\begin{figure}[h]
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{experimentalapparatus}
\caption{Experimental Apparatus. Copied from Dr. Wes Campbell's Lab Manual.}
\end{figure}


But it will not show up. However, when I just do

\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{experimentalapparatus}


the image shows up. The thing is, I would like to be able to use the figure environment so as to caption the figure.

I know that a similar question exists on this forum, but following those instructions didn't alleviate the problem, so clearly, something else is the matter. What's going on?

• Hi and welcome, we need a bit more information. Please provide a minimal working example. – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 9:41
• Do you see the caption? IS the figure on the next page? – Johannes_B May 8 '15 at 9:42
• No caption, and no, the figure is nowhere to be seen. I will try to make a minimal working example, I've never used one before! – vdogsandman May 8 '15 at 9:45
