Here you go. Call Switch 3 the one closest to the battery, Switch one will be the top right switch and switch two will be the bottom right. [https://imgur.com/5bTpNt8](https://imgur.com/5bTpNt8)

thank you so much my friend

Does this seem to be what it needs to be? Are you taking a class, or was this for a project you're doing? If you need some more help with designing circuits, Khan Academy has some "alright" resources for circuits.

I’m taking a class, the unit is over now. The teacher takes hours to reply so I had to ask here. You answered my question completely. Thank you


LoneWolfWi13

You’re welcome and good luck in your studies! I wish you the best.


joe_bidens_left_nut

You as well!

the switch leg from the third switch is the “hot” for the other switches. is that enough to get you started?

phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/circuit-construction-kit-dc/latest/circuit-construction-kit-dc_en.html is the thing I’m using.


joe_bidens_left_nut

I don’t know what that is

See if this can help you get started.

Switches 1 and 2 will be in parallel with each other. Switch 3 will be in series with both 1 and 2.

If switch 1 and 2 are in parallel, you can't achieve requirement 1.

See my post above. I think you're misinterpreting what it is saying. If only switch 1 is the only one open, then lamps one and two would be extinguished. This means that switch 2 and 3 are closed and lamp 3 is illuminated. If switch 2 is the only one open, then switches 1 and 3 are closed. This means lamps 1 and 2 would be illuminated and lamp 3 would be extinguished. If switch 1 and 2 are both closed and switch 3 is open, no current can flow (not a complete circuit) so all lamps will be extinguished. See my post above with the link to the program OP is using. I think that's the right solution.

Let's also name the lights. (L1, L2, L3) SW2 is in series with L2. This series piece ( SW2 and L2) is then put in parallel with L1 SW1 feeds the whole thing I wrote above. Meaning, SW1 feeds L1 and SW2. SW3 feeds SW1 and L3.
