Diluting with water

By diluting the solution with water, it makes it more difficult for the enzyme and substrate to find each other. (There is more space for them to have to float through to find each other - for example, say you lose your binder. It would be much easier to find your lost binder if you know you lost it in your bedroom vs. if you lost it at school because the school campus is much bigger than your bedroom.)
