1 Lab Report Improvements Enzyme Reaction Rate:CATALASE and HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
2 MacromoleculesProtein studied here An enzyme is a TYPE of proteinAn enzyme speeds up chemical reactions: name for that? A CatalystCatalase= the SPECIFIC enzyme we studiedCatalyst is not the same as CatalaseYeast is NOT an Enzyme, Human is Not an Enzyme (Yeast is an Organism)
3 Improvements Needed Title: Should be specific to your experiment Poor Example: Enzyme ReactivityWonderful Example: Catalase Reaction Rate with Substrate Hydrogen Peroxide
4 Hypothesis HYPOTHESIS in terms of the CLASS experiment: If we test a range of temperatures, then the most optimal for a high reaction rate will be…We are NOT “feeding” Yeast that was the cellular respiration labWe are combining an enzyme (Catalase) with the substrate (hydrogen peroxide) at the active sitemeasuring the rate of reaction at different temperatures
5 DataScatterplotData points NOT connectedTrend line?
6 What are the scientific principles? Not just definitionEnzyme: What was it in our experiment? Substrate: What was it?Describe all terms in relation to OUR experiment did not test pH
