Investigating Enzyme Activity

  • By measuring how fast a product appears 
    • The enzyme catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water
    • Collect and measure oxygen in a set time
    • Pipette to add set amount of hydrogen peroxide to boiling tube
    • Put tube in a water bath at 10`c
    • Add a source of catalase (e.g. 1cm^3 of potato to tube and attach bung
    • Record how much is oxygen produced - repeat three
