We are given:
k1 [ES]= [E][S] / Km
E+S---->ES
<---- with Km=(k1+K3)/K1
k1'

k2 material balance gives:
E+I------>EI
<------ [Eo] = [E][S]/Km + [E][I]Ki
k2'
where Ki=[EI]/ [E][I] is the equilibrium constant
k3 for step 2 on the left.

ES--------->E+P

Use this to show that the initial reaction rate is given by:

k3[E]o[S]
v=d[P]/dt=----------------------------- approximately=to k3[E]o[S]o/Km+[S]o
Km+[S]+KmKi[I]

#### Solution Preview

The first thing to realize is what we are looking for...

d[P]/dt = k3[ES] "from last reaction"

substitute in for [ES]
d[P]/dt = k3*([E][S]/km) "from first relationship [ES]= [E][S] / Km"

Notice that [E] is not in the intital reaction rate wanted. Thus we need to get rid ...
