An enzyme-catalyzed reaction was carried out with the initial substrate concentration 100 fold higher than the Km of 1.5μM for that substrate. After 10 minutes, 1% of the substrate had been converted to product. If, in a separate experiment, one-third as much of enzyme and twice as much substrate was used, how long would it take for the same amount of product to be formed?

When the initial substrate concentration is way higher than the Km, the velocity of the reaction (Vmax) doesn’t depend upon the initial concentration of the substrate.
Considering that the enzyme is in small concentration, Vmax...
