Help with drawing a circuit diagram

  1. Jun 10, 2008 #1
    This is a problem for school that I need a little help with:

    Draw a circuit diagram that includes an electric motor, a green light, a red light, and a switch. If the motor is on, the red light should be on. If the motor is off, the green light should be on.

    Here is what I have so far. I'm thinking this might actually short circuit but I'm not sure. I also don't know where the motor will come into play or why exactly I need it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You simply have to put the motor in one of the arm sof the circuit (the one with the red light) otherwise - very good.

    For such a simple circuit, tracing the current is easy - just imagine it was a pipe full of water and draw a colored line wherever the water (current) could flow.
