Experiment #1 1. At substrate concentration, the enzyme is working at “maximum efficiency.” With a concentration at 40, it produced 2,339 products. 2. The maximum velocity of a reaction is reached when the active sites are almost continuously filled. Increased substrate concentration after this point will not increase the rate. The reaction rate increases as substrate concentration is increased. It will soon level off though. 3. When the concentration is at low substrate, most of the enzyme molecules are not filled since there are low concentrations of substrate. As the result, the substrate is filling in the enzyme molecules which cause it to rise in a straight line. Experiment #2 1. No enzyme activity is present at low…show more content…
