Biochemistry

Complete hydrolysis of 25 mM ethyl acetate in an enzyme esterase catalyzed reaction is carried out in a 40 mM NaCl solution buffered by 0.2 M Tris-Cl, pH 9.1. What is the pH at the end of the reaction? (For Tris base, which is the abbreviation for Tris (hydroxymethyl) aminomethane, pKa = 8.1; for acetic acid, pKa = 4.76)

    Okay so if i have two enzyme catalyzed reactions: 1) delta g of the ES = -22kJ/mol 2) delta g od the ES = 42 kJ/mol Is this first reaction going to have a higher reaction rate because the of the negative delta g, because doesnt a
