I'm a ninth grader and I would appreciate some help.
This test would involve Hydrogen Peroxide.
1. If we put in a 'pea-sized' amount of liver, potato, chicken, and apple,
to their respective test tubes, how 'fast' would their reactions be?
Assigning a numerical value from 0-5 with 5 being the fastest, how would
one assign a number?
2. At what temperature do enzymes catalyze most efficiently?
Using the same numerical system, how would one assign the rate of enzyme
a) O degrees Centigrade
b) 22 (room temperature)
c) 37 (Body temp.)
d) 100 (Boiling)
3. At what pH do enzyme work the most efficiently?
Also, using the same numerical system, how would one assign the values for
the rate of enzyme activity in the respective pH?
I appreciate your responses. Thanks you.
