Hello,

I have a physics midterm on monday and this question is on the study guide so help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

(ok, since this diagram isn't showing up properly, here is a pdf file that includes the diagram I am asking about http://www-physics.mps.ohio-state.edu/~klaus/f06-112/midterm_options.pdf

|--------------|

| |

| | --------------|

| | |

_ X X

__ | |

| |-----X-| s|---|

| | |

| | |

| X X

| | |

|----------------------

So What happens when we close the switch (labeled s)? The X marks represent light bulbs. What lights are on/off before closing the switch and what lights are on/off when after we close the switch? Also how would I find the total resistance?

Thank you!
