So I have a DC motor that should turn with light on LDR and should stop when I cover LDR or turn off the lights.
Basically the transistor should work in saturation and cutoff modes.
Transistor will operate in cutoff mode when no current goes through the base, that means I have to put a resistor with high resistance in series with my photoresistor. This high resistance plus the high resistance of LDR due to darkness will make transistor to work in cutoff mode.
Transistor will operate in saturation mode when the base voltage is at its highest that means low resistance at the base.
This is my dilemma, so if I put a high resistance in series with my LDR that will help my resistor to operate in cut off mode but will prevent my transistor to achieve its max current in saturation mode because of the voltage drop across the large resistor at the base. So what should I do?
