A GRADE catalase Coursework

To investigate the effect of temperature on the rate of reaction of an enzyme “catalase” by measuring the amount of oxygen produced by the reaction. I am going to investigate the effect that temperature has because this is an easy variable to change and control using water baths. Catalase is found in all cells and catalyses the reaction.

and all my equipment will be clean along with my hands in order to keep the area sterile to
prevent foreign substances hindering the reliability of my results.



Prediction

I predict that as the temperature increases the rate of reaction will increase however I believe
that…

Conclusion

From the graphs I have drawn I can see sings of some relationships in the data. There is a
positive correlation in the results except for the outliers. The amount of Oxygen increases to
