The objective of this catalase lab is to design simple experiments to show how different factors impact the rate of enzyme activity. This laboratory shows the way the enzyme decomposes in hydrogen peroxide. Methods and Supplies

A catalase is a great enzyme that catalyzes the reduction of hydrogen peroxide. This enzyme is vital since it prevents the build-up of H202 in your body. This laboratory was completed to analyze and experience how H202 is usually decomposed in several concentrations of catalase and H202. It was done by raising the number of catalase in the lab with the equivalent H202, after which increasing the amount of H202 while using same amount of catalase to observe results and patterns. Graph one particular shows the increased decomposition of H202 that was produced if the amount of catalase was increased by 2 hard disk drives every time. The more catalase that was added, the more quickly the decomposition was. The fastest and the most efficient decomposition was once there were 12 catalase filtering papers in 10mL of H202. The graduated cylinder was stuffed with oxygen in 1 minute and 46 seconds. Graph 2 shows that the decomposition rate slept relatively comparable with two catalase hard disk drives and different, elevating amounts of H202. This...
