d evise an experiment to test the effect of some other environmental factor on amylase activity.

Be sure to include a control in your experimental plan. That is, include a tube containing everything except the factor you are testing. Then you will have something with which to compare your results. Carry out your experiment only if it has been approved by the laboratory instructor.
