Investigate The Effect Of Temperature And Ph On Reaction Rate

Decent Essays
Temperature and pH will affect enzyme function by increasing the reaction rate because as temperature increase so is the rate of reaction and extremely high or low pH will result in the denatured by decreasing the reaction rate. The function of this experiment was to investigate the influence of the concentration of enzyme on the rate of reaction. The rate of reaction in this experiment was subjected by the amount of Guaiacol, H2O2, Extracts, and Buffer (pH5). The reaction rates with different enzyme concentration at 0.5x (ml) was slow but gradually increase making the absorbance below 0.1NM. At 1.0x (ml) the rate was a little slow but then it increased rapidly. The reaction rate as observed at 2.0x (ml) went immediately up in the absorbance

    biological highly selective catalyst, greatly accelerating both the rate and specificity of metabolic chemical reactions, from the digestion of food to the synthesis of DNA. Enzymes catalyze chemical reactions involving the substrate. Substrate is a molecule that attach to the active site of the enzyme protein which an enzyme acts. Active site is a small port in an enzyme that helps enzyme to bind with substrates and undergo a chemical reaction. During this binding of substrates with active site it creates…
