  2. Set-up the welding power source for direct current reverse polarity.
  3. Differentiate between direct current reverse polarity and direct current straight polarity.
  4. Differentiate various techniques that are used for vertical welding and overhead welding.
  5. Identify the electrodes used for in position welding and out of position welding.
  6. Identify the difference between a long arc and a short arc by slag evaluation.
  7. Name the different weave techniques used in vertical welding.
