The primary reaction catalyzed by catalase is the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to form water and oxygen, which occurs spontaneously, but not at a very rapid rate. Write a balanced equation for this reaction. (Remember that catalase is not a reactant or a product and can be written over the arrow separating the reactant from the products.)
