Classical enzyme kinetics are interpreted from a new angle here, and biological macromolecular enzyme catalysis is viewed and explored at the molecular level. The time course of sequential catalytic events is analyzed, the relationships between catalytic efficiency, catalytic rate/velocity and the amount of time consumed are established. This writing tries to connect the microscopic molecular behavior of enzymes to kinetic data obtained in experiment, and the equations proposed here can be testified and examined by future experiments.
