    I have a homework to do a simulation of a curcuit which needs the switch on and off.
    My question is there any difference to all the switches that the pspice(capture cis) has between them and also how do i turn on and off the switch on pspice. switch.png

    You can try to use Sw_tClose and Sw_tOpen connected in series or instead of a switch you could use VPULSE source (squarewave).

    Also, what are the purpose of a logic gate and R2 resistor?

    I found the switches but in the end i just used a big resistance for off state.
    The nand is used as a (not) and the R2 is used in case we remove the nand or it get's destroyed we will be sure we will have 0 volts on the mosfet.

    Yes, I know. But I ask why the gate is needed in the first place?

    For example, this circuit will work exactly the same way as your circuit.

    But isn't the 0V at the MOSFET gate turn-on the MOSFET and energize the relay?

    Yes the mosfet will turn on if vin is <9.5v
