# KM of a Michaelis-Menten enzyme

The KM of a Michaelis-Menten enzyme for a substrate is 1.0 x 10-4 M. At a substrate concentration of 0.2 M, Vo=43x10^-6 M for a certain enzyme concentration. However, with a substrate concentration of 0.02 M, Vo has the same value.

(A) Using numerical calculations show that this observation is accurate.

(B) What is the best range of [S] for measuring KM?

#### Solution Preview

Please see the attachment.(A) Km = 1.0 x 10-4M

[S] = 2 x 10-1M

Vo = 43 x 10-6M

Using Michaelis-Menten equation:

Vo = Vmax[S]

Km + [S]

At [S] = 2 x 10-1M,

43 x ...
