1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Formulate your own definition of what is meant by living organisms. *I also posted the lab which this question is asked on in a thread called "Enzyme Lab." 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I don't think that this answer is right but don't know what else to write: 9. Living organisms include macromolecules which include proteins. Proteins in a tertiary or quaternary structure may form an enzyme (example: catalase) which are essential for the well being of the organism. A lack of an enzyme such as catalase prevents the organism from performing a certain function such as breaking down certain foods or poisonous materials such as hydrogen peroxide. An organism will not be able to live if it does not contain the required enzymes to carry out its functions.
