THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON ENZYME ACTIVITY
• The main aim of this experiment is to see if temperature has any effect on the enzyme activity.
The hypothesis I am going to use is: -
• Hydrogen peroxide will form oxygen gas and water when it is broken down.
In the article, “First warmer, then sicker,” there are some examples of the results of global warming. “Incremental temperature changes have begun to redraw the distribution of bacteria, insects and plants, exposing new populations to diseases that they have never seen before.” In Sweden,
