    effect multiple temperatures would have on the activity of an enzyme. It’s scientifically known that there’s a positive correlation between temperature and an enzyme’s rate of reaction. In other words, as temperature increases, so too does the rate of reaction of an enzyme. However, this correlation between temperature and enzyme activity doesn’t stay positive indefinitely. In fact, as temperature increases, it will eventually hit a certain point known as the optimal temperature. It’s at this

  • Optimum Temperature Lab Report

    1238 Words  | 5 Pages

    The graph drawn is “ Rate of reaction against temperature of hydrogen peroxide”. From the graph , we can see that as the temperature increase , the rate of reaction increase as well , until the optimum temperature is reached which is pH 5 which the highest rate of reaction is reached. After this point , the rate of reaction started to decrease. This is because the enzyme begins to denature. It means that as the temperature increases , the activation energy is lower thus the rate of reaction increase

  • Temperature Change Lab Report

    718 Words  | 3 Pages

    In conclusion temperature change did affect one of the tubes in two very different ways whilst concentration also played a role in the change of the product and reactant. Le chatelier's principle states that through change in temperature, change in concentration and adding pressure you can create an equilibrium where there can be a forward reaction and a reverse reaction. By continuously adding and taking away heat and changing concentration we have created these reactions. When we took away the

Next, it asked to add one scoop of calcium chloride and stir for two

  • Does Temperature Cause Convection Currents

    368 Words  | 2 Pages

    I think the difference in temperature can cause convection currents, because like the lava lamp the more hot something is the more dense it becomes then it rises to the top, the more cool something gets the less dense it becomes and it sinks to the bottom. So when plate tectonics go through a convergent boundary it slides under the crust it then has a current, which is caused from convection. Which then spreads. Then it heats up, and rises to the top. Once it 's at the top it cools down and becomes

  • How Does Temperature Affect Amylase Activity

    595 Words  | 3 Pages

    The reason for this experiment was to observe the way temperature affected the amylase activity, in both bacterial and fungal. It is predicted that temperature can affect the way an enzyme is able to break down. After analyzing the results in tables 1 and 2, one can state that the data provide us with sufficient evidence to support that when an optimal temperature of an enzyme is not correct, the functions will be reduced or denatured. The importance of enzymes can be emphasized by the different
