Question

1.All enzymes in our body work their best at a specific temperature known as optimal

temperature,but they also work very well at temperatures slightly below and above the optimal (aka=optimal range). Enzymes that metabolize alcohol have their optimal temperature around 95 Fahrenheit. The water in the hot tube was at 115 Fahrenheit. This 20 degree increase in temperature: (more than one option might apply)

a. Is well outside of the optimal range at which the enzymes can function properly

b. Is still within the range of temperature at which the enzymes could work

c. means that the enzymes are not breaking down alcohol as fast as they could, situation that will have a stronger effect on Roma Underhill (weight = 120lb).

c. means that the enzymes are not breaking down alcohol as fast as they could, situation that will have a stronger effect on Clint Underhill (weight = 160lb).
