    Enzyme Lab Report

    • 565 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Background: A catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing permanent chemical change. The most common catalysts in biological systems are special proteins called enzymes. Enzymes are long chains of amino acids that have taken a very specific three-dimensional shape called a globular shape. This specific shape contains an area that is designed to match a specific molecule. The substance that an enzyme operates on is known as its substrate.…

    Enzyme Lab Report

    • 3 Pages

    Enzymes are organic catalysts that speed up reactions that occur by lowering the activation energy of the reactants. By lowering the activation energy, the chemical bonds are weakened, thus the reactions are much faster than without the catalyst. Enzymes are composed of proteins which shape dictates the function of the enzyme. On the enzyme it contains a part called the active site where the substrate binds and the chemical reaction undergoes. A substrate is the chemical involved in the…

    Alpha (α) Radiation The alpha radiations particles have 2 protons and 2 neutrons which are in a helium nucleus. As the alpha particles emit the helium nucleus the nucleus gives away the two protons and two neutrons. As a result of this the mass number will reduce by 4 and the atomic number will result in reducing by 2. This is known as alpha decay. One source of alpha radiation could be plutonium 239. The alpha particles have many characteristics. First of all the alpha radiation has a helium…

    Nuclear Radiation Essay

    • 1676 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Radiation is formed by the instability of an atom either having too many or too few of and type of particles within an atom 's.These type of particles can be either having too many or too few electrons, neutrons or protons and you have a radioactive element.The element becomes unstable as each part holds another part on so having too few means that the link may be too weak to hold it together then having too many means there pushing others off the particles as there are too many attached to the…

    In this new era of 21th century, our world is surrounded by energy even our eating foods also having energy which is chemical energy. In physics, energy is defined as a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or be converted into many different forms (encyclopedia 2016). Energy can be differentiated into two groups which is renewable energy and non-renewable energy. Renewable energy group is defined as the group of energy which can be replenished naturally in a short period…

    • 5 Pages

    current standard model. As we know today, the Atom is made up of a Nucleus and a space reserved for electrons called the Electron Cloud. The Nucleus consists of a certain number of both Protons and Neutrons. This model is the The Cloud Model. Erwin Schrodinger created the final product of the cloud model after looking over Bohr’s model and research. The cloud model comes as an advancement from the Planetary Model which showed the Electrons moving around the Nucleus of an Atom in rings…

    In the chapter “Democritus, Sophie is asked “Why is Lego the most ingenious toy in the world?”(Gaarder 44). This question then leads to the philosopher, Democritus, who is known for the atom theory. Alike the structure of legos, he believed all atoms that made up the universe were “eternal, immutable, and indivisible”(Gaarder 45). Furthermore, Democritus believed all atoms were firm and solid and were all different. Since they were all different, he thought they could join together and form all…

    known as plum pudding model. It was also known as watermelon model where the positive charge was the flesh of the watermelon and the electrons were the sects. a) J.J. Thomson who discovered the electron in 1897, proposed the plum pudding model of the atom in 1904 before the discovery of the atomic nucleus in order to include the electron in the atomic model. b) In Thomson’s model, the atom is composed of electron surrounded by a soup of positive charge to balance the electron’s negative charge…
