what happens to the enzyme if the temperature gets too high?
the enzyme denatures and cannot fit in the active site of the substrate
1 of 5
what happens to the active site when the temperature increases too high?
the active site changes shape so the substrate can no longer fit.
2 of 5
what happens at the optimum temperature?
the enzyme works best
3 of 5
what happens to the rate of reaction if the temperature is too high or low
the rate of reaction decreases
4 of 5
what happens to the enzyme activity if the temperature is too high or low?
there are more frequent colissions
