The Effect of Temperature on the Rate of Carbon Dioxide Production in Saccharomyces Introduction The introduction section of a scientific method paper should consist of approximately 2 pages. They should consist of a series of factual statements, all documented and based on the questions listed below. They would serve as the logical foundation for the formulation of a hypothesis. The hypothesis should be stated in this section, and consist of a sentence beginning with “The purpose of this experiment was to test the hypothesis that…” 1. When one refers to the temperature of a system, what does this mean? 2. How are chemical reactions, especially their rates, influenced by temperature? 3. Give various examples of the effect of temperature on biological systems. 4. What is yeast? 5. What is the overall fermentation reaction by yeast, starting with glucose as an energy source? 6. What is an enzyme? 7. How are enzymes and the reaction rates they control influenced by temperature? 8. How can you measure fermentation rate? 9. What would you hypothesize the effect of temperature to be on the rate of CO 2 production? Materials and Methods 1. Obtain 5 fermentation tubes and label them 25°C, 35ºC, 45°C, 55ºC and 65°C. Add 30 ml. yeast culture to each; be sure and swirl the flask first to suspend cells
