    You will actually need to know what you are varying.

    Hey, I just wrote a plan for enzyme catalase varying the pH, and when I was doing it did find some help on such sites as essaybanks etc. You could try them to see if they might have results, but what exactly are you varying? and you dont have to use the gas syringe, could try counting bubbles *teach said its accurate as bubbles comes out of the same delvivery tube so appromxiatley the same size* or could measure using cylinder, so you get it filled with water and tip it upside down in a twaer tub and the oxygen will displace the water and you get results. Sorry not much help, but hope you get it done by fri =)

    No, i lost marks because the explaination was a pain to do. No matter what i say, i lost marks due to either:

    1) incomplete explaination of results
    2) explaination shows experiment was flawed.

    So i just tweak my results to look nicer, and concurrent with data. also I add one erronous data in it. And so got some good stuff to write about without being penalised.
