Test Tube Degrees Celsius
1,267 wordsEnzyme Action: Testing Catalase Activity Enzymes are proteins that serve as catalysts and accelerate chemical reactions in living organisms. Enzymes accomplish this by lowering the energy of activation of the organism it is acting upon, however enzymes will only lower the energy of activation for specific organisms, reducing chaotic chemical reactions. The reaction is carried out in its entirety in the active site of the enzyme. The substrate (organism acted upon), binds itself into the active s...

Several factors affect the rate of reaction: 61656; Increasing the concentration. (See the lock and key theory. ) If the substrate (glucose) is increased, then there would be more keys for the locks, therefore an increase in reactant concentration leads to an increase in reaction rate. 61656; The surface area, the bigger t...

On the line graph, I have drawn a curve of best-fit. There were no anomalous results. From my results, and my graph, I have found out that as the temperature of the enzymes (yeast in this case) is increased, the rate of reaction speeds up. However, when the temperature reached a certain point, (about 40 degrees Celsius), the enzymes became de...

Chloroplasts which are found in plant cells are used in the process of photosynthesis. They fall into the category of plastids but they are differentiated in that they contain chlorophyll. These organelles produce chemical reactions from the energy that the sun gives them. The Golgi complex's structure is made up of many flattened membranes sacs that ar...

Chemical Reactions Three Types
890 wordsChemical Chemical Reactions CHEMICAL REACTIONS Chemical reactions are the heart of chemistry. People have always known that they exist. The Ancient Greeks were the firsts to speculate on the composition of matter. They thought that it was possible that individual particles made up matter. Later, in the Seventeenth Century, a German chemist named George Ernst Stahl was the first to speak of chemical reaction, specifically, combustion. He said that a substance called phlogiston escaped into the ai...

Atomic Theory Chemical Reactions
379 wordsAtomic Dalton Theory Dalton s Atomic Theory John Dalton developed the first useful atomic theory of matter around 1803. In the course of his studies on meteorology, Dalton concluded that evaporated water exists in air as an independent gas. Solid bodies cant occupy the same space at the same time, but water and air could. If the water and air were made of discrete particles, evaporation might be viewed as a mixing of water particles with air particles. He performed a series of experiments on mix...

This is because ecological imbalances were as a result of the Industrial revolution, which could be said to be the beginning of the non-ending technological advancement cycle. During Industrial revolution, we began altering or climate and environment through changing agricultural and industrial practices. Before the industrial revolution, human activity released very few gases into the ...

The average human being spends one third of their life in sleep and during each sleep approximently two hours is spent dreaming (Ullman and Zimmerman 1979). These dreams are important because they are the voice of our subconscious. Dreams and theories on dreams go as far back as 2000 BC in Egypt. One of the first org...
