Numerical problem related to Michaelis-Menten Reactions

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Please explain:
An enzyme catalyzes a reaction at 20μmol/min when the substrate [s] is 0.01M. The Km for this substrate is 1 x 10-5M Assuming michaelis-menten kinetics are followed, what would the reaction velocity be when the concentration [s] is (a) 1 x 10-5 M (b) 1 x 10-6 M?

Am I looking for Vo or Vmax or both? Please help!
