Living systems depend on chemical reactions which, on their own, would occur at extremely slow rates. Enzymes are catalysts that reduce the needed activation energy so these reactions proceed at rates that are useful to the cell. The study of enzyme kinetics can help us understand the function and regulation of enzymes.
