Ph affcet on enzyme

How does the a change in ph affect an enzyme

every enzyme has an optimal ph and higher or lower would affect reaction rate

As pH increases, the enzyme will work at a faster rate up to a certain pH, which depends on the individual enzyme. After that optimum pH, the enzyme will denature because it is too acidic.
