After having carried out an experiment time how long it takes for a 
certain amount of oxygen to be produced from the reaction of potato 
catalase and hydrogen peroxide, I found that a pH of around 4 is the 
fastest rate for this reaction, but I have read in the archives that it is 
supossed to be 7. Plaese help me, if I am right then can you please 
explain why it is not 7.
