    Hi guys,
    Can anyone help me I'm having a big big panic over here. I am taking a distance learning online Biology A level this year in prep for my Physiotherapy application/hopefully study in September. Anyway this monday I have a practical workshop where we will start our investigation report as part of unit 6.
    The topic I have been given to do our experiment on and write the report (I used the suggested topic rather than doing my own to be safe) is:

    "The effect of substrate concentration on the action of invertase"

    So in prep for my practical I have to write my introduction which will include a summary of what I'm going to do. Problem is I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO! I can't find anyone online, my tutor isn't responding and I need to get it done today!

    Also... one of the questions asks me to research invertase (the enzyme).. I've done that and found where it is used, what it is etc - but it also asks me to state WHY it is of interest to investigate. Now this question again has completely stumped me.

    Can anyone help on these two things?! has anyone done this experiment before?!

    (from a very stressed mature student who hasn't done science for 7 years)
