Experiment Results Predict Question: Predict Question: What effect do you think boiling and freezing will have on the activity of the amylase enzyme? Your answer : c. Boiling will decrease amylase activity and freezing will have no effect. Stop & Think Questions: Tube 2 appears to have the same amount of starch digested as tube 3 because Your answer : d. freezing hydrolyzed the starch. Correct answer: a. freezing had no effect on the enzyme.
