Lol, i came up with a completely original answer to this, but they wouldn't take it.

Seeing as you can't go upstairs...use the downstairs light-switch.

I dunno though, learn about how fuses work, what happens when they're not the right fuse.

Night_shadow, if people were clever enough not to install a down stairs switch we wouldn't need to use logic Grin Close, learn how fuses work, especially the similarity between them and light bulbs( that'll differenciate one bulb) then with the nature of bulbs(what do light bulbs do!) and this you should be able to differenciate the other two! Wink PM me if you need more help!

You have a point, but i have an even better logical question:

"How overweight do you have to be to only be able to go up the stairs once? "


Lazy people now-a-days..

Come on guys... lets think.... It took me two seconds to figure it out.

Hint/Clue

If a light bulb is left on for a while, it grows warm

Honestly we all use magnetic fuses here (Germany) or ones with pretty huge ceramic bodies. Even googleing for fuse types didn't helped too much, I know now in what variety they come, as if I ever wanted to know Wink Anyways I pretty much solved all the challenges pretty fast in this category (at least I assume it, still waiting for the answers though) with the exception of No. 5 as to me the way a fuse box works is neither circuite is connected to each other and besides the status on/off (in whatever flavor) there nothing to the fuses. Logical to me would be to turn them all on and live with it, but that's not the right answer obviously there's no need to go up and check them and go back to probably turn them off. I will post an answer to this with the box although it's just a guess as I really don't see any logic there tbh...

oyu seem to be over complecating it also, WTF is a magnetic fuse?.......... oooh you mean circuit breaker not that kind of fuse, I mean plain old think wire fuses, they are the same concept as a lightbulb, you need to know which bulb is linked to which bulb, so you cant judt fluck em on.

Magnetic Circuit Breaker right Wink My fault for the misnaming Grin Anyways given the previous hints I already sent in my "solution" awaiting for acknowledgement...

I did this in less than 5 minutes, just knowing what a lightbulb is. You don't have to know how fuses work or what kind they are. Just use common sense..

light bulbs are basically fuses, and fuses utillise the characteristic for lightbulbs which most people forget.

That's not what I meant.. I just imagined them as switches, like any light in my house. Doesn't matter if they're fuses or not, just think about the light bulbs.

a old fasion light bulb isnt efficient. Like everything where there is a current trough there are losses. In a wire:
I²*R=W where W= the energy lost by temperature
1000W bulb and 200V elektricity (i gonna cheat on this one... Smile ) 1000W/200V=I (W=U*I)
current is: 5 A
(5A)²*R is the energy loss by temperature. Now take something like youre PC the temperature raises to. But hey the biggest clue is already said...
Just think what you can do with 3 switches...

WTF I do a-level physics and dont have a clue what you're on about. IR=V not energy lost as heat, and a 1kW bulb is a bit bright for use on Earth lmao, is w watt? cause you used an U then P=VI so 100watt / 200 volts so 0.5amps and about 80 watts of a 100watt 'old fashioned' bulb goes as heat.

I know my grade 11 physics very well, but I used none of it for this challenge. Forget everything about physics and use common sense.

Ok I'm totally stumped on this here is everything i have tried short of space aliens why are none of these right

a: turn on/replace a fuse while your lightswitch is on and if you get electrocuted its the right one
b: look for the fuse with the broken filament cuase its the one thats responsible(blown)
c: Or touch the fuses to see which one is hot from short circuiting. Since none of the metals used are perfect superconductors their resistance generates heat.
d: call an electrician(this costs alot)
e: call 911(some lady called asking them how to bake a cake before!)
f: USE THE FORCE
g: switch to solar power and call it a day
h: unleash the most ferocious termites known to man. wait until you can see your upstairs lights from downstairs and then begin.
i: take all six wires the fuses are attached to and sting them up in a parrellel circuit with one new big fuse (resistance adjusted) for all of them.
j: hit your head against the fuses and if they knock you unconcious their the wrong one(lights out)

i need a hint

lmao yeah i've tried similar ones, but can't figure it out. I also tried 'look at the fuse you have...you must only have one if you can only change one of them. The fuse should tell you what its resistance is, and judging on that, the fuse should only be able to fit into one place or else short circuit. Put the fuse in the right one, and that's the best you can do, because even if its not the one that turns the lights on, if you put that fuse in the light circuit it'd go out anyway.'

Wow. We're studying fuses in physics class right now and I STILL didn't get it until you gave that hint. Thank you.

*edit* nevermind. I got it wrong- took them forever to get back to me...

this thread makes as little sense as the actual logic#5.
i tried lots of stuff...nothing worked.
