Comparing α amylase kinetics using differential calculus

Author(s):

Tanmai Vachhani

Abstract:
The paper’s aim is to prove that there is a significant difference in kinetics of α amylase from three different sources. To prove this, the paper devises a new procedure that employee’s spectrophotometer to measure the optical density of starch solutions and make a starch standard curve. Using the obtained information, the paper derives a mathematical derivative function for each type of amylase. The derivative function is than used to calculate the kinetics of α amylase.
