Step 2: Circuit Diagram

Picture of Circuit Diagram

Construct the circuit has shown in the circuit diagram.

Working :

1. This circuit is used for detecting light.

2. When the light falls on the LDR the resistance of the LDR reduces & in return turns the GREEN LED on

3. The circuit is based on the typical common-emitter configuration - (When there is small change in input voltage at the base of the transistor, produces large changes in the output at the Common of the transistor)
