5 11 0.158 Graph 2: Effects of pH on Extent of Browning After performing this part of the experiment and plotting the graph, we determined that the optimal pH is 7, neutral. Discussion: Enzymes are proteins that reduce activation for a reaction to occur. This means that less energy is required for a system to produce its products. Enzymes do not perform in all conditions though. There are ideal conditions in which enzymes operate. This does not mean that all enzymes have the same ideal conditions; every enzyme has different conditions in which it works in. In this lab, we tested the enzyme catecholase in two different types of conditions. We tested the enzyme in different pHs and temperatures
