How do enzymatic catalysts increase the rates of reactions? select all that may apply
A. they shift the reaction equilibrium toward the products.
B. they promote the formation of a transition state.
C.they lower the activation energy of the reaction
D. they increase the concentration of reactants
E. they decrease the free energy of the reaction.
Concepts and reason
Enzyme catalysis increases the rate of a reaction by using the enzymes as catalysts.
Speed of a chemical reaction that proceeds is called as rate of reaction.
First write the general characteristics of the enzyme catalysis, than check out the correct options to increase the rate of reaction.
Catalyst is a chemical substance that increase or decrease the rate of a reaction without consuming in the reaction.
Enzyme catalysis is a process that uses enzymes as catalysts and changes the rate of a chemical reaction.
Characteristics of the enzyme catalysis are shown below.
Enzyme catalysis is more efficient, because a single molecule of enzyme catalysis can transform millions of molecules of reactants per second.
Enzyme catalysts are very specific nature, one enzyme catalyst is useful for one type of reaction only.
Enzyme catalysts are active up to certain temperatures.
Catalytic activity of Enzyme catalysts will be enhanced in presence of co-enzymnes that also called as activators.
The applicable statements are as follows:
B. They promote the formation of a transition state
C. They lower the activation energy of the reaction
