Effect of An Acidic Fluid on The Enzymatic Activity of Catalase


Design an experiment in which you will test the effect of an acidic fluid on enzymatic activity (Recall: enzymes are proteins). As you design your experiment for this project, please remember that you are trying to examine how an acidic fluid will modify the outcome of an enzymatic reaction. To successfully complete this project, you will need to identify the question(s) being asked in your experiment and the hypothesis that you are testing. In your experimental design, you must clearly explain what you are doing. That means that you will need to identify the enzyme and the acid, as well as explain your experimental protocol. You must also thoroughly explain how the addition of the acidic fluid impacted the overall reaction process. Keep in mind that the acid will change the environmental conditions of the experiment (for example, a low pH value could change the shape of the active site on the enzyme protein), without directly participating in the reaction.
