Are enzymes dissolved in solution in order to function?Watch
water is a solvent so it allows for stuff to be dissolved in it and carried around. however enzymes do not need to be dissolved to function. for an enzyme to function an esc must form.
thanks boss man so what is the importance of water being a good solvent to living things? when you say carried around are you saying that becuase the blood is made up of a percentage of water? thanks
also there is water in blood and as water is a solvent, ions can dissolve in the water in blood and be carried around the body.
Water is a solvent which is good as it allows many biological reactions to take place. and by transport i meant it allows oxygen and glucose and other things to be carried around the body in animals and plants.
However, water is important as we need ions like sodium ion (salt) for our body. We need other ions too. Ions can only be ions when it's molten or dissolved in solution. You may have done ions in chemistry. Anyways, waters are important to transfer products like ions and other dissolved stuff to keep our body fit.
