B3 - Enzymes and Temperature

HideShow resource information

Changing the temperature of reactions involving enzymes will change the rate of the reaction itself.

A higher temperature will increase the reaction rate.

However, decreasing the temperature will slow the reaction.

This is because higher temperatures cause more collisions, as the particles move around more, and lower temperatures reduce the speed of particles, and henceforth slow the collision rate.

BUT...

If it gets too hot, then the bonds…
