Question

please explain why this happends, im having trouble in this section.

Part A
Chymotrypsin, an enzyme that hydrolyzes peptide bonds in proteins, functions in the small intestine at an optimum pH of 7.7 to 8.0. How is the rate of the chymotrypsin-catalyzed reaction affected by each of the following conditions?

 

decreasing the concentration of
proteins
running the reaction at 75 °C
changing the pH to 3.0
Rate decreases
Rate increases
Rate stays the same
