Thus a plot of y as a function of [P]/t yields a straight line with y-intercept Vmax/Km, slope -\/Km and x-intercept Vmax- Several data points should be obtained, starting at a concentration significantly higher than Km and letting the reaction proceed until [S] ^ Km. In actual practice the Henri-equation is rarely used, as results tend to be unprecise.
