  • The Enzyme Concentration and The Volume of Juice

    729 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Enzyme Concentration and The Volume of Juice As the enzyme concentration increases so too does the volume of juice. This is because as the concentration of enzyme molecules increase there is more chance of a collision with an apple substrate molecule. If the chance of a collision is increased then the number of collisions will increase resulting in a higher rate of reaction. The enzyme combines with the substrate to form an enzyme-substrate complex. Enzyme + Substrate ¬¬¬> Enzyme-Substrate

  • The Effects of Enzyme Concentration on the Activity of Amylase

    986 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Effects of Enzyme Concentration on the Activity of Amylase To investigate the effect of Amylase concentration on its activity. the relative activity of Amylase is found by noting the time taken for the starch substrate to be broken down, that is, when it is no longer gives a blue-black colour when tested with iodine solution. This time is referred to as the achromatic point. Equipment: v Amylase solution 0.1% v Starch Solution 1.0% v Distilled water v Iodine in potassium

  • The Effect Of Enzyme Experiment On Catalase Concentration

    1613 Words  | 7 Pages

    the time of conducting the experiment, the intention was to analyse the effect that an increase in catalase concentration had on the amount of oxygen (O2) produced if the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration was constant. It was proposed that when the catalase increases in concentration at the increments of 0.5%, 1%, 2%, and 4% and the hydrogen peroxide remained at a fixed concentration, the oxygen production would rise gradually. It was suggested that this would occur due to the collision theory

  • The Effect of Different Concentrations of a Substrate On an Enzyme

    691 Words  | 3 Pages

    of Different Concentrations of a Substrate On an Enzyme Introduction: Enzymes are biological catalysts. They are generally large proteins made up of several hundred amino acids. Enzymes catalyze thousands of chemical reactions that occur in living cells. Enzymes are highly specific so each one speeds up only one particular chemical reaction. Many kinds of enzymes are found in each cell but because they are used over and over there may be only a small amount of each enzyme present.

  • Effect of Substrate Concentration on Enzyme Activity

    1204 Words  | 5 Pages

    Background An enzyme is a biological catalyst which speeds up biochemical reactions, such as digestion and respiration, but they remained unchanged at the end of the process (Walpole, Merson-Davies, and Dann 53). Problem Question What is the effect of the substrate concentration on enzyme activity? Hypothesis As the concentration of the substrate increases, the rate of reaction also increases until it reaches its maximum point where all enzyme molecules are already active due to the solution becomes

  • Investigate the effect of enzyme concentration on the rate of reaction

    2404 Words  | 10 Pages

    To investigate the effect of enzyme concentration on the rate of reaction PREDICTION: An enzyme is a biological catalyst. They speed up the rate of a reaction however they do not affected themselves whilst doing this, which is why they are catalysts. Enzymes are made to be specific, this means that they can have only one substrate that they will work on. Each enzyme has an active site that is where their own specific substrate’s molecule will fit into. The enzymes catalyze chemical reactions beginning

  • The Effect Of Substrate Concentration On The Activity Of The Enzyme Catalase

    2003 Words  | 9 Pages

    The Effect Of Substrate Concentration On The Activity Of The Enzyme Catalase A Level Biology Project Aims This is an experiment to examine how the concentration of the substrate hydrogen peroxide affects the rate of reaction of the enzyme catalase. Introduction This is a real A-level school project and as such is intended for educational or research purposes only. Extracts of this project must not be included in any projects that you submit for marking. Doing this could lead to being

  • Investigating the Effect of Enzyme Concentration on the Hydrolysis of Starch with Amylase

    4181 Words  | 17 Pages

    Investigating the Effect of Enzyme Concentration on the Hydrolysis of Starch with Amylase Aim: Investigate the effect of enzyme concentration on the rate of an enzyme-controlled reaction. Using amylase and starch as my example. Introduction: I am investigating the effect of the concentration of the enzyme, amylase on the time taken for the enzyme to fully breakdown the substrate, starch to a sugar solution. The varied variable will be the concentration and all other variables are going

  • The Concentration of Substrate's Effect on the Rate of an Enzyme Controlled Reaction

    602 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Concentration of Substrate's Effect on the Rate of an Enzyme Controlled Reaction Plan ==== In this investigation I aim to find out whether the concentration of hydrogen peroxide affects the rate at which catalyse breaks it down. The rate of reaction will be measured by how much oxygen is collected. Hydrogen Peroxide -------------------Water + Oxygen --------------------------------------------------- 2H O------------------- 2H O+ O Experiment List ===============

  • The Effect of Enzyme Concentration on the Rate of an Enzymic Controlled Reaction

    650 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Effect of Enzyme Concentration on the Rate of an Enzymic Controlled Reaction Enzymes are protein molecules, which can be defined as Biological catalysts, which alter the rate of a reaction without the enzymes undergoing change themselves. Enzymes are usually specific to one singular reaction. Enzymes are globular proteins with the helix coiled into a precise three-dimensional tertiary structure, with Hydrophilic R groups held by four different types of bonds: 1. Hydrogen 2
