What happens to the initial reaction rate as substrate concentration increases?

Initial rate increases linearly as the substrate concentration increases as the active of site the enzyme becomes more likely to collide with the substrate molecule forming an E-S complex. As the substrate increases a point will be reached where adding more substrate has no effect on enzyme activity - this is when excess substrate is present and the amount of enzyme is not limiting.
