  • Relationship Between Ph And Temperature

    1710 Words  | 7 Pages

    What’s the Relationship Between pH and Temperature? The most important question to ask is, of course, does changing the temperature of a solution affect its pH. Knowing this is required in order to go forward with attempting to apply a relationship between the two to Acid Deposition. The simple answer is that pH is affected by the Temperature of the solution, with some minor complexities The main explanation of this relationship is Le Chatelier’s Principle (Fondriest Environmental 201410), which

  • Effects of pH on Enzyme Activity

    1704 Words  | 7 Pages

    Aim To investigate the effects of pH on enzyme activity Research question To what will pH levels 1,7,12 affect the rate at which liver catalase catalyzes the decomposition of 10ml of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to water (H2O) and oxygen (O2) exemplified by the volume of foam reached in 1 minute Hypothesis Since the optimum pH of liver catalase is approximately 7. I expect the greatest volume of foam to be achieved at pH of 7 because it is the optimum pH of liver catalase. I also expect to see lower

  • The Effect Of Ph On Enzyme Activity

    Avi Borad The Effect of pH on Enzyme Activity Introduction: Metabolism is a necessary process in the function of living cells, which is driven by enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts that speed up chemical reactions by lowering the activation energy. Changes in the pH of an environment in which the enzymes act affect their performance capability. The optimum pH is the pH in which the enzymes catalyze the reaction at the fastest rate. The type of enzyme affects its optimum pH. Enzymes are typically denatured

  • The Effect Of Ph On Catechol Oxidase

    1218 Words  | 5 Pages

    Bio 1130 20 October 2014 The Effect of pH on Catechol Oxidase Abstract Catechol, in the presence of oxygen is oxidized by catechol oxidase to form benzoquinone (Harel et al., 1964). Bananas and potatoes contain catechol oxidase that acts on catechol which is initially colorless and converts it to brown (Harel et al., 1964). In this experiment, the effect of pH on the activity of catechol oxidase was conducted using buffers ranging from pH2 to

  • The Effect Of Concentration On The Ph Of A Buffer

    power to minimise changes in the pH when an acid or base is added. The blood pH must be kept close to 7.4. In the occasions that there is a decrease or increase in either arterial pressure or partial pressure that is where Alkalosis and Acidosis comes in. Buffers are weak acids of bases that are able to minimize changes in pH by taking up or releasing H+. Phosphate is an example of an effective buffer, as in the following reaction. HPO42- + (H+)↔H2 PO4- Blood pH Must be Kept Close to 7.4 . Hydrogen

  • The Effect Of Temperature On The Ph Of Orange Juice

    1625 Words  | 7 Pages

    of a substance effect it’s ph?.” I will be testing this by using ph indicator strips that change color when it comes in contact with an acid or a base and comparing it with a color chart. The substances I will be using are vinegar, orange juice , and lemon juice. These can all be found at a local grocery store. The ph paper and color chart can be found at Walmart. Besides my experiment there have been other experiments that have tested temperature’s effect on ph. They also wanted to know

  • Investigating The Ph Of Water Sources Essay

    782 Words  | 4 Pages

    Week 2 started by determining the pH of 8 water sources. The pH of the various water sources are displayed in Table 2 as follows: rain water at 5.58, water with atmospheric levels of CO2 at 6.40, the Jordan river at 6.60, the Clear creek at 7.20, Lake Monroe at 7.74, water saturated with CaCO3 at 9.45, and water saturated with CO2 at 4.10. Identity of Sample pH Rain water 5.58 Water with atm. Levels of CO2 6.40 Jordan river 6.60 Clear creek 7.20 Griffey Lake 7.49 Saturated with CaCO3 9.45 Saturated

  • The Effect Of Ph On Enzyme Activity Of Peroxidase

    2258 Words  | 10 Pages

    Effect of pH on Enzyme Activity of Peroxidase Thomas Stinde March 15, 2016 Coconino Community College Effect of pH on Enzyme Activity of Peroxidase For us to understand what the effects pH have on enzyme activity of peroxidase, we must first define what an enzyme is and what is done as well as a peroxidase. According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, an enzyme is, “a substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction” (Oxford Dictionary

  • The Effect Of Ph On The Function Of The Enzyme Amylase

    1216 Words  | 5 Pages

    Discussion – Effect of pH on the Function of the Enzyme Amylase The objective of the lab was to examine the effects of environmental variables on the functions of an enzyme. To the point, an experiment was conducted to test the effect of pH on the function of the enzyme Amylase. Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts and help reactions take place. In short, enzymes reduce the energy needed for a reaction to take place, permitting a reaction to take place more easily. Some enzymes are shape
