BIBC 102 Name KEY ___ Summer Session 1 07 Homework 1 Discussion Section_________ 1) For the uncatalyzed, first-order reaction: k 1 A B k -1 Define the following, using only starting reactant and product concentrations and rate constants. a. forward reaction velocity, V V = k 1 [A] – k -1 [B] b. reverse reaction velocity, -V -V = k -1 [B] – k 1 [A] c. and equilibrium constant, K K eq = k 1 /k -1 2) Complete the following sentence: Enzymatic catalysis [ does/ does not ] change the equilibrium constant for a reaction, because… Catalysis does not change the equilibrium constant for a reaction, because there is a direct inverse relationship between K eq and the overall standard free energy change, ∆G °. Since the catalytic activity of the enzyme cannot affect ∆G°, the catalytic activity also does not change K eq . The enzymatic catalysis does decrease the activation energy, ∆G° , required for the reaction to proceed. This will increase the forward and reverse reaction rates and their
