    The active site of the enzyme combines with the substrate to form a enzyme substrate complex. Which is short live. And that complex breaks down on to products as seen in the 2nd picture . Then the products leave the active site without changing the enzyme and making the active site free to react with a new substrate. Did u get it ?
