Effects of pH on Enzyme Concentration Abstract: In this lab report you will be testing the effects pH has on the rate on enzyme reactions, you will be collecting data and evaluating things that went will and ways it could be done better to help us further understand this lab. Research Question: How does pH affect the amount of reactivate when reacted with Hydrogen peroxide on an enzyme? Hypothesis: The higher the pH the higher the reaction with Hydrogen Peroxide on the enzyme will increase. Background Information: An enzyme is a catalyst that speeds up chemical reactions, but it does so with out change the chemical reaction its self. Ph is the concentration of hydrogen ions it ranges from 1-14 when the pH is at 7 it is considered neutral. Water has a pH of 7 which is neutral on the pH scale. In this lab we will be experimenting to be how the different number of pH effect the rate the enzyme reacts. Since water is neutral at 7 we have a hypothesis that its amount of form inside the test tube should be higher or have more form then something that is more acidic, which means is pH is lower than 7. The amount of enzyme and the amount of concentration substrate should be equal since it’s an equally balanced formula and you can not make more then what you put in that means if the substrate concentration increases then the enzyme activity should also increase. We will be using hydrogen peroxide which is a liquid with strong oxidizing properties to test are hypothesis. “Because of
