Effect of Temperature on the Rate of Reaction

THE ABOVE GRAPH SHOWS THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON REACTION RATES

 

At region A on the graph, the rate of reaction steadily increases.

At region B on the graph, the temperature is too hot. The enzymes are denatured, slowing the rate of reaction (e.g. photosynthesis).

The graph below shows the activity of enzymes that are found within the human body.
