Unformatted text preview: reaction rate. 5. If turnip peroxidase is tested in an environment of pH 9, then there will be a slow reaction rate. Rationales: 1. pH 5 is a slightly acidic environment, but is a little more acidic than optimal pH. Therefore the reaction rate will be quick, but not optimum. 2. pH 6 is a very slightly acidic environment. Therefore the reaction will be optimum. 3. pH 2 is a very acidic environment and may denature the protein in peroxidase. Therefore there will be little or no reaction. 4. pH 7 is a neutral pH. This is not acidic enough to create an optimum reaction rate. Therefore the reaction rate will be quick, but not optimum. 5. pH 9 is a slightly basic environment. This is too basic for a good reaction rate. Therefore the reaction will be slow....
