Here's a taster:

Factors affecting the rate of enzyme reactions
Temperature
Enzymes have an optimum temperature which is the temperature at which they work fastest. For most this
is around 40 degrees, but there are ones at 90 and some below 0 degrees,
Leading up to the optimum temperature, the rate increases steadily, because the enzyme and substrate
molecules have more kinetic energy and so collisions happen more often and because there is enough
energy to bypass the activation energy (already greatly reduced thanks to the enzyme.…read more
