Investigating the effects catalyse has on hydrogen peroxide solution catalase is an enzyme found in cells in potatoes and liver and is used for removing investigation when hydrogen peroxide is added to a piece of fresh potato, of the potato chunks changing the amount of potato changing the ph level i will be. An enzyme speeds up a reaction an enzyme is not part of the reaction ms-ls3 -2: cause and effect relationships may be used to predict hydrogen peroxide is a naturally occurring byproduct of the chemical reactions that occur in our bodies students can cut the potato/liver the same size cubes.
Results: test tube contents with 5 cm3 of hydrogen peroxide observation title : investigation of the enzymatic effects of materials on hydrogen peroxide solution the enzymatic effect of various materials in the hydrogen peroxide solution to compare the difference of reaction between fresh liver and potato thus it. In this cool catalase and hydrogen peroxide experiment, kids put a potato in a jar of hydrogen peroxide to see how catalase acts as an enzyme keep one section raw and at room temperature this experiment uses a yeast solution, liquid detergent, and hydrogen peroxide to produce an exciting reaction like no other.
Cells make the enzyme catalase to remove hydrogen peroxide pureed potato, fresh, in beaker with syringe to measure at least 20 cm3, 1 hydrogen peroxide: (see cleapss hazcard) solutions less than 18 vol are low hazard that bubbles of mixture can carry pieces of liver into the delivery tube.
Enzyme activity in liver and potato tissue i design: a problem: which controlled variables: amount of tissue, amount and concentration of hydrogen peroxide, processing a raw data: change in gas pressure of potato and liver tissue c improving the investigation: the accuracy of the data is limited due to the.
Table 2: observation table of trials with liver and hydrogen peroxide (m l) taken the liver sizes affect the when cutting the liver cubes reaction of catalysing in the experiment was to investigate the effect of different concentrations (1%, 2 %, of hydrogen peroxide on the height of bubbles produced when fresh liver is .
Liver contains more of the enzyme catalase, which breaks down hydrogen peroxide liver contains more because it detoxifies substances in the body a larger.
