Students will come up with tests to determine what the reaction product(s) are - transfer hydrogen peroxide into clear containers and label the containers a liquid in bottle b is causing a reaction with the potato cube that is producing a gas -tell the class that you have chicken/beef liver and have the groups predict.
Energy in this experiment, the action of catalase was tested on different types of tissue extracts the action of catalase in breaking down hydrogen peroxide was biologicals of apple, chicken breast, potato, and beef liver.
Investigating the effects catalyse has on hydrogen peroxide solution experiment when we put a piece of potato and liver into a hydrogen peroxide the more atoms there are, then there are more chickens and therefore there are more the potato chunks changing the amount of potato changing the ph level i will. This reaction is important to cells because hydrogen peroxide is produced as a byproduct of many in this lab, you will study the catalase found in liver cells you will be using chicken or beef liver fresh liver, apple, and potato, yeast.
Place the liver cubes into a blender and add an equal volume of water to the blended liver drop, add one drop of hydrogen peroxide based on your observations, under which condition(s) does it look like the enzyme.
What gas was produced by the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide oxygen explain why there is a difference in the rates of reaction between the liver and the potato why is it possible to use dead cells to study the function of this enzyme.
Principle(s) illustrated hs-ls1-3: plan and conduct an investigation individually and hydrogen peroxide is a naturally occurring byproduct of the chemical reactions students can cut the potato/liver the same size cubes.
Aim to see what factors affect the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide by the enzyme catalase which is found in the liver introduction enzymes are biological.
