Note: Can skip all images except last, which is a schematic created using the editor.
I am at a point in the design process where I have created a schematic of the circuit that I want to create. I am using a buck converter to step down a 24V DC battery to 5V and using that battery to power an arduino. This arduino is acting as a speed controller, using PWM and getting input from external switch to set the speed. The input from this switch will be programatically read to set the speed output. The 5V output signal from the arduino then gets run through an op-amp configured as a non-inverting amplifier and drives a motor. The schematic follows: 1
This is the first real circuit I have created, and I don't know where to go from here. It is more than likely that I have made a mistake somewhere or forgotten a part or some heat/power consideration, but I don't have the slightest idea (1) how I could check my circuit for those things or (2) how I would remedy them.
I was wondering how I could go about doing these things and improving my knowledge of electronics in this way. I apologize if this question is somewhat vague; however, I really respect this community and the years of experience you have in the field, and I was hoping that your insights would be valuable in this question, as I don't really know how I could make it more specific. Thanks.
EDIT 3: Added pull down resistor to schematic and flipped MOSFET:
