Which placement of "from above" is correct in this sentence?
1) The o-ring is pressed onto the sample from above.
2) The o-ring is pressed from above onto the sample.
I feel that the first sentence, 1), is correct, but mostly due to the fact that 2) seems to be translated from German too literally. I also feel that I have heard the 1) formulation more often.
Given that "feel" is not a good way to be sure about grammar I would be happy to learn why one of the sentences is correct.
PS: I called "from above" an adverb here for lack of better knowledge ;-)
