    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance

    you could change the substrate concentration, see how it affects rate
    change the enzyme concentration, see how it affects rtae
    do the reaction under different pH conditions
    do different temperatures (find the temperature at which the enzyme is denatured, prove the optimium temperature condition
    find a specific enzyme inhibitor, talk about competitive - non competitive inhibition

    Hmm, as a part of my A2 indivdual investigation, I am doing something similar, in terms of enzyme catalysed reaction. As I am using catalase, and want to be able to devise rate equations, then don't I need to be able to know/measure the concentration of catalase? I'm not sure as to wether or not I can actually measure the concentration of catalase from the source I am using. If anyone has any ideas then I'm open for discussion!
