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,…

Enzyme Concentration
As the concentration of enzymes increase, the rate of reaction increases linearly, as there are more enzymes
to catalyse the reaction. However, it is no good if the enzyme concentration exceeds the substrate
concentration, this will have no effect on the rate and the substrate concentration will become…
