Lab 2 Assignment â€“ The Scientific Method
Name: Zunny Castillo Section: 07
Part A: Determine Enzyme Extract Concentration
In Part II Exercise 1, you ran a biuret assay to determine the protein concentration of the enzyme extract
using a standard curve. Use the values from your serial dilution to generate a standard curve with a
linear trendline equation and R2 value in Excel. Double check that your graph has all of the aspects
needed for a graph, including a Title, Axis labels, and a Legend. Make sure you use your pairâ€™s data
recorded in the lab manual for this assignment.
Copy and paste the standard curve here:
Legend: A graph that shows the relationship between absorbance and concetration from the biuret
assay of enzymes, which is directly proportional. By using a SpectroVis we were able to measere the
absorbance at 540nm and the concentration using a the step dilution factor of x2. The blue line shows a
line of best fit and its equation above it, which was retrevied from Excel. The R^2 value of .9893 is above
.97 which indicates that our data is accurate.
