Calculating rate

Post by chips31 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 7:00 pm

I've just done an experiment on how long it takes an enzyme to react on starch in seconds. If I were to calculate rate for this experiment, would it be:

rate = 1 / time
the units would be seconds^-1 (s^-1)

well, wouldn't it have to be how many substrate molecules you can react per unit of time?
