Concept #1: Theoretical Maximum Reaction Velocity (Vmax)

Practice: In a Michaelis-Menten kinetics plot (V0 vs. [S]), what is the reason that the curve reaches a plateau and V0 cannot increase any further upon adding more substrate?

Concept #2: Vmax can be Expressed with a Rate Law

Concept #3: Vmax is Affected by [E]T

Practice: Vmax for an enzyme-catalyzed reaction:

Practice: What kind of kinetics is observed initially in an enzymatic reaction under conditions where [S] is saturating?
