Solution Preview

Temperature affects enzyme function in a number of ways. First, temperature is a measure of the kinetic energy of molecules meaning that the higher the temperature the more times enzyme and substrate will find each other. The increase in collisions increases the number of times that the substrate and enzyme will find each other. Enzymes have a ...
