BIOL 1510 Enzyme Lab – Individual Group Data Graphing Instructions I am assuming that everyone knows the graphing basics in Excel, so I won’t go into detail on that. You should construct a basic XY (Scatter) plot for each of your trials. Enzyme Velocity - 0.1% 0.000 0.050 0.100 0.150 0.200 0.250 0.300 0.350 0.400 0.450 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 Time (sec) Natured - 0.1% This plot was constructed using fictitious data. Notice how the title clearly shows what this graph is representing. The axis labels are present and display the units when necessary. The legend shows you exactly what is being plotted. When more than one thing is plotted on the same graph, the legend becomes more important. When you are plotting only your own group’s data, there is of course no standard deviation to graph. To add a trendline, right-click on any data point on your plot and select “Add Trendline.” The following window will appear:

Select the “Linear” trendline. Also click on the “Options” tab and check the “Display equation on chart” checkbox as shown below. Then click OK. Your plot should now look something like this: Enzyme Velocity - 0.1% y = 0.0018x + 0.072 0.000 0.100 0.200 0.300 0.400 0.500 0.600 0 100 200 300 Time (sec) Natured - 0.1% Linear (Natured - 0.1%) The slope of the resulting linear trendline (0.0018) is the velocity of the natured enzyme at this peroxide
