How do enzymes function speeding up in a chemical reaction?
Enzymes lower the activation energy of a chemical reaction. Since more molecules have sufficient energy to react, the reaction occurs faster.
to act as catalysts, speeding up the reaction Enzymes act as catalyst for the reaction by providing the proper places for molecule to meet and lessening the energy needed to complete the reaction. Otherwise, reactions could only happen if - by coincidence - all the molecules collided in the proper places with the right amount of energy.
A biochemical reaction will be a chemical reaction that is regulated by an enzyme or series of enzymes to turn some precursor into a usable (or voidable) chemical within a life system. An enzyme is a protein that helps to facilitate a chemical reaction. Often, enzymes will help by speeding up a reaction, although in the case of some rapid, exothermic reactions, the enzyme will limit the reaction to keep heat waste to a minimum.
