Unformatted text preview: 1.07 1.02 0.98-0.12 7.6 1.24 1.1 0.95 0.82 0.69 0.58-0.01-0.32 for the general enzyme one: take the slope, multiply by 4 and divide by 180 for slope in rate/sec. for pH: take the slope, multiply by 6 and divide by 150 for slope in rate/sec. 1. The dilution closest to rate of decrease of .3/min is the 1/2 dilution instead of the 1/4 dilution, which was supposed to be the answer in class. 3. The optimum pH is 6.8 because it had the highest level of starch digestion rate, which means that it would be the best optimum level given the three option. Judging from the graph, alpha-amylase lasts longer under pH 6.8, which means it will digest more food in a given pH than if it were at any other pH....
