    Lactase hydrolyzes lactose into glucose and galactose. galactose is then converted to another glucose by galactosidase. How would I state the reactions involving these enzymes using word equations?

    i need word equations with descriptions

    for example.
    for example.
    combustion of propane to produce carbon dioxide and water is:
    C3H8 + 5O2 --> 3CO2 + 4H2O
    Propane (Fuel) + Oxygen --> Heat + Water + Carbon Dioxide

    This is the reaction catalyzed by lactase:
    lactose + water ----> glucose + galactose
    C12H22O11 + H2O ---> C6H12O6 + C6H12O6

    Notice that glucose and galactose both ...
