    I've attached a table and my calculations to find Km and Vmax for an enzyme following Michaelis Menten Kinetics and well as identifying what kind of inhibitor I is. I think my proposed solution is too simple and I must be missing something. If so, what am I overlooking and how do I figure this out?

    Your process is spot on. I have attached Excel graphs verifying your results for slopes and intercepts. Your math is to get the Km and Vmax is also ...

    Solution Summary

    Km and Vmax are verified using the principles behind Michaelis-Menten kinetics. The type of inhibition is also investigated.
