Conclusion From the graph, I am able to back up my theory. I can see when the enzyme is most active and when it starts to denature. From the graph, I have found out that, as the temperature increases, so does the catalyse activity, as it does not take as long to move the same distance, up to a certain point (59C) where the activity's slowly coming to a halt and levelling out. I found that the optimum for a catalyse is at 40C. This is where the greatest number of collisions takes place between...

It was a dark and stormy night
It was a dark and stormy night It was a dark and stormy night. The rain came down in torrents, soaking the solitary man to the skin. He stood alone, silent, still enveloped by the black of the night. Had the sun been shining, this lonely man would have seen the flat green fields surrounding him and far in the distance a house stood, as solitary as the man. Yet the dark limited the man's vision so the house vanished. Suddenly the man's eyes snapped open. The look on his face was one of absolute ...

By analyzing the legal practices and relations in Sander County, it is evident that law and the courts play a cent...
