What is the effect of substrate concentration on enzyme activity? How does enzyme activity change as substrate concentration decreases? Explain on a molecular basis.

I am not sure what the question wants from me. Would this be right, and is there anything missing from my response? :: As the substrate concentration increases, the rate of reaction also increases. This is because more of the substrate is available to allow the enzyme to bind to it.

  1. or wait..is it because if more substrate is available, then reactions will occur faster? I need some help wording this, please :)
