Chemical Kinetics is the study of the rate and process in which the reaction takes place, therefore as enzymes are biological catalysts that will speed up reactions, understanding how they affect reactions is important to understanding kinetics. They will speed up reactions when they are activated by specific substrates through the induced-fit mechanism.
I think we would need to know how enzymes can decrease the activation energy of a reaction. Therefore, if we were asked to find how the rate of the reaction, k, changes with or without the enzyme, we should be able to calculate it.
