      Hi, I am trying to write a word equation to outline the reactions involved for lactase hydrolyzes into glucose and galactose. Galactose is then converted to another glucose by galactosidase. I am not sure how to do this.

      something like that:
      H2O2 + Catalase –> H2O + O2

      Approximations and simplifications included

      Usually, people write the name of catalyst above the the arrow in the equation.
      I think the way people define the meaning of word equation is to write the name of the reatant and product. I will give an example like this:

      we have an equation:
      NaOH + HCl —> NaCl + HOH
      Now we write it in word equation:
      When sodium hydroxide reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce sodium chloride(table salt) and water.
      or : Sodium chloride and water are produced when sodium hydroxide reacts with hydrochloric acid.
