The slope represents

The starting curve for your double reciprocal plot is actually the **Michaelis-Menten Plot**, which looks like this

The above plot shows the rate of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction,

The equation plotted looks like this

Now, you need to get from

Now, to get to slope, think of the

This plot is called the **Lineweaver-Burk plot** and it looks like this

The slope is equal to

A double reciprocal plot is used for analyzing enzyme kinetics.

It is a useful method for analyzing the **Michaelis-Menten equation**:

where

Taking the reciprocal gives

The equation is of the form

where

A plot of **double reciprocal plot** or a **Lineweaver-Burk plot**.
