    If a substrate concentration increases, the time taken increases and rate of reaction decrease?

    The rate of the reaction doesn't decrease, no.

    At low concentrations of substrate, an increase in [substrate] would lead to an increase in the rate of reaction. At higher concentrations though, an increase in [substrate] would not have any significant effect on the reaction rate.

    Can you think about why?

    Yh that is what I thought as well but our teacher gave us a set of results so that we could practice for our assessment, although when I manipulated the time taken (which increases when it shouldn't) into rate of reaction it gives me a decrease in rate of reaction. So she must have given us wrong results which she made up.

    Thank you
