    The Effects the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide An investigation into how the amount of oxygen is produced by changing one variable effects the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide in the presence of the enzyme. This shows us that when the H2O2 has reacted with the catalyst this is what it produces. There are many ways in which the amount of oxygen produced could be affected. I believe that, surface area of the chip, temperature of liquid that is reacting, the concentration of the liquid…

    Objective: To understand the function of an enzyme when it undergoes different conditions such as temperature, PH, and concentration of the enzyme. Introduction: In our lab “Enzyme Action” we were testing the enzyme reaction with different substrates. In our lab we tested 3 different enzymes and substrates to find out when they are at the highest potential. Enzymes are necessary for life because they keep our bodies chemical reactions at a normal pace. Enzymes have the ability to keep a human…

    Enzymes are proteins that are a efficient catalyst for a biochemical reaction. It’s responsible to speed up reaction by having an alternative pathway of low active energy. In a simple cell it can be found 2000 different enzymes, each one of these have the ability on catalyzing a different reaction. Each of the enzyme found are responsible on having a reaction occurring in the cell. In this certain reaction in the cell, the cell will tend to make poisonous chemical that could be harmful to the…

    Escherichia coli, a bacteria with an optimal pH of between 6.5 to 7.0 to enhance its proliferation is very commonly used in laboratories and studies worldwide due to its low cost and high effectiveness and will therefore be the bacteria of choice for this investigation. It has been shown in many studies such as the article “HdeB chaperone activity is coupled to its intrinsic dynamic properties” very recently published in the prestigious magazine Nature that bacterial growth and overall…

    • 2 Pages

    Zinc is a trace mineral that is necessary for growth, healing, and overall health. It helps more than 100 enzyme systems. It is used in metabolic reactions in cells. Zinc aids in immune system function, the growth of bone, teeth, and connective tissue, and gene regulation. Meat, fish, and poultry contain the best-absorbed form of zinc. However, fortified cereals and legumes also contain zinc. Zinc can also be consumed by taking a supplement. A deficiency in zinc can cause growth…

    The purpose of this experiment is to discover which environmental factors, the independent variables, are most optimal for enzyme functionality and how they affect enzyme functionality. Enzymes help speed up chemical reactions in the body and lower the activation energy to do so. Enzymes can also aid with metabolism and digestion. They can break down larger molecules to smaller molecules that are more easily absorbed by the body. A substrate is the reactant that is acted upon by an enzyme in a…

    By definition an enzyme are biological catalyst that facilitates specific chemical reactions. What this means is that an enzyme is a protein its function is to function as catalyst which lowers the activation energy for the reaction to occur quicker. Enzymes have different ways that it reacts with substrates. One way is that an enzyme reacts with a substrate is by bringing two substrates together correctly or by stressing particular bonds of substrates. By doing on or the other an enzyme can…

    • 5 Pages

    Enzymes, usually proteins, are biological molecules that increase chemical reactions. Enzymes are important for survival and they help out in several different functions throughout the body, such as assisting metabolism and digestion. Though not all, some enzymes take apart huge molecules into smaller parts which can be much simpler for the body to digest. For each experiment, I came up with a hypothesis before testing/knowing the results. When amylase influenced starch disappearance, I…

    In recent studies, cyanide poison is a toxic substance that appears in different variety of crops. According to Ogundele and Caxton- Martins," Cassava is the most widely consumed of these plants and it has been associated with economic condition in certain parts of the World; especially the tropics and sub tropics." These plants are called cyanophoric plants because they contain phytotoxins. Cyanide is very highly reaction to alkali earth metal. They mostly reactive to salt such as potassium,…

    Catalysts and Inhibitors work by providing an alternative reaction pathway for the breaking and remaking of bonds in chemical reactions, changing the speed of the reaction. They are neither consumed in the reaction. Rather, they alter the amount of activation energy required. Different reactions require different catalysts, as well as different reactions require different inhibitors. The reaction energy path controls the speed of the reaction. The molecules follow the path of least resistance,…
