Most enzymes are proteins. And just like any other protein, enzymes are also affected by changes temperature.
A general factor that affects all chemical reactions would be the number of collisions. Increasing the temperature around an enzyme increases the kinetic energy of the system, causing an increase in the number of collisions, leading to an increased rate of reaction.
As the temperature around an enzyme rises, what happens? Mark all correct answers.
A. the reaction rate can get faster.
B. the enzyme can bind more than one reactant at once.
C. the hydrogen bonds in an enzyme can break.
D. the protein can change shape.
E. the protein can denature.
F. temperature has no effect on enzymes.
