. How does the efficiency of an enzyme compare with that of inorganic catalysts? Are enzymes more or less efficient?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The efficiency of an enzyme should be compared with the inorganic catalysts. If the enzymes are more or less efficient should be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Enzymes are the proteinaceous compound act as catalyst for catalysing reaction. It works on biochemical reactions and catalyze it by increasing the speed of chemical reactions. The shape of the active site of enzyme fixed with the shape of substrate. It act as catalysts by forwarding the reaction to give product and transporting and storing other molecules such as oxygen.

Explanation

Enzymes are proteinecious structure which helps in catalyzing the metabolic reactions in tissues while inorganic catalyst speed up the chemical reactions and thus catalyze it.

All enzymes are catalyst while all catalyst is not enzyme...
