This Is because I realised that I need a wider range of results, so I chose to go above 60 oC and below 30oC. The reason I went up 80oC was to prove that the enzymes denature. ...read more.


A stopwatch was used to measure the time accurately to a 10th of a second. I used a measuring cylinder to count volume to the nearest cm3 . This made it more accurate than counting bubbles, as they are different volumes. This was about as accurate as I could possibly get it. ...read more.

    I am going to control this by using a 0-1.0 cm3 syringe because it is accurate and precise compared to something like a measuring cylinder because it is to big where as a syringe is small and easier to adjust to make the amount of TTC exactly 0.5cm3).

    As oxygen is being used up, the volume in the tube will decrease and this will push the manometer fluid towards the tube containing the invertebrates. Below is a diagram showing how I intend to set up the apparatus. Variables There are many variables that affect the rate or respiration,

    The reason for the behaviour of the enzyme shown in the graph involves the kinetic theory mentioned in my prediction. In this experiment, as the temperature increased, the enzyme and starch molecules collided more frequently (Brownian motion) and with more energy, which caused them to react more efficiently.
