Enzymes and How they Work – Slidedeck

Videos from the slide deck…



•How does an enzyme affect the activation energy needed for an exothermic reaction?

•Do enzymes work at all temperatures and pHs? Why?

•Will any molecule fit into the active site of an enzyme?

•Are catalysts used up as they help speed up a reaction?

•Why do living things need catalysts to function properly?
