Lightbulb Light Switch Puzzler

I came across this today and thought it was interesting.-

There are three light switches in the basement. One of which turns on the lamp in the attic. You parent/guardian tells you to figure out which light switch turns on the lamp. The problem is, you can only take one trip to the attic and no one else is home. Which lightswitch corresponds to the light in the attic? Use problem solving skills to solve, then check your answers at the below post.

Exclamation Answer!

You would-

turn one lightswitch on and let it sit for at least five minutes. Turn the next one on an go upstairs. If the lamp is on, it is the light switch you tried second. If the lamp is off, but warm to the touch, it was the first lightswitch you tried. If the lamp is off and cold, it was the one you didn't try. To solve this problem, you had to use you problem solving skills to remember that lightbulbs do not only give off light, but they emit heat too! Hope you liked that puzzler!

I liked it!

To clarify, you'll have to turn off the first light switch right before turning on the second one right?

Smart! I'm creating a forum just for quizzes and will move this quiz there really soon!

Did you ask BB if she wanted that information to be posted? I believe that it really isn't safe to be posting personal things. You could always private message her about it, but if she wants her privacy, respect it and don't tell perrsonal things. Thank you.
