Our biology teacher told us to do an experiment the task is in her blog.
a- Why did you leave the potato and the test tube in the water baths before the experiment?
b- State: – the independent variable
– the dependent variable
The height of the foam produced.
– two fixed variables
c- Describe the results shown in the graph.
d- At what temperature the enzyme works best?
e- What has happened at 100°C?
There is no foam. There is no activity because at high temperatures the active site loses its shape, therefore the substrate doesn’t fit into the enzyme. The enzyme is denatured.
