    Introduction The effect different temperatures have on the rate an enzyme works was tested by this lab. The concentration of the enzyme catalase in different types of cell was also tested. Enzymes are balls of protein that change a specific substrate into a product by contact at the active site. Enzymes are reusable and once they finish tuning one substrate into a product, it moves on to the next substrate it bumps into in just the right way. The enzyme catalase, which this lab focuses on, can…

    performed in order to demonstrate the principles of nitration through electrophilic aromatic substitution. It also examined the effects of bromine on an aromatic ring, ortho-para vs. meso directing. The second experiment was performed to compare the reaction rates of electrophilic aromatic bromination with different arenes. Data and Results In the gas chromatogram, there are two large peaks. The first peak at 0.653 minutes with an area of 133,352 uV per second, 31.95% of the total area. The…

    Even though Amylase can get denatured at high temperatures, a slight increase in temperature, should increase the rate of amylase reaction. Research title The effect of temperature on amylase activity. Word count-1025 Background research Enzymes are catalysts which speed up reactions in living organisms. Enzymes function by decreasing the activation energy for a reaction. Amylase is an enzyme found in human saliva and catalyses the hydrolysis of starch .Amylase like all other…

    investigation to establish the effect of different temperatures (from 0°C -100°C) on the production of oxygen gas in a potato catalase reaction, using hydrogen peroxide as a substrate. The oxygen gas produced will be measured using a gas pressure sensor. Introduction: Enzymes are proteins, known as biological catalysts that increase the rate of reaction in a biochemical reaction without being chemically altered. The human body consists of various different types of enzymes, each with different…

    A chemical reaction’s rate is described by the amount of product formed. Substances that increase that rate are called catalysts. Catalysts are often proteins called enzymes. Enzymes change the pathway of the reaction between the products and the product. However, enzymes don’t alter the starting or ending points. Enzymes are effective by reducing the activation energy. The enzyme tyrosinase is located in melanocytes. These are cells that produce the pigment melanin. Melanin gives skin, eyes,…

    Enzymes are a biological catalyst. When a chemical reaction is taking place the enzyme works to lower the activation energy of a reaction. The activation energy is, the amount of energy that is required in order for a reaction to take place. Enzymes bind to reactant molecules. The enzymes hold these molecules in a way that makes the processes of the chemical bond-breaking and bond-forming take place more readily. A reaction can be either energy-releasing or energy-absorbing. Enzymes have no…

    The hypothesis for the experiment is that if the temperature and pH increases (but not past optimal levels), and the higher concentration of amylase, then it will result in faster rates of enzyme activity. Therefore, if the opposite were to occur, then the reaction will slow down and not function properly. For concentration, my hypothesis was proved to be correct. The undiluted solution had higher frequencies of collision at the active site of the enzyme and substrate. Which means the percent of…

    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,…

    PART A. Hypothesis: The Effect of Catalase Concentration It was hypothesized that if different number of disks would relate to the rate of the reaction produced then increased number of disks would result in increased rate of reaction. This occurs because an increased enzyme presence allows the substrate to rapidly change into a product providing all other factors such as substrate concentration, pH, ionic concentration, and temperature remain unchanged or fixed. ("What Is the Effect of…
