Casa & Asa | 11-13 yrs | Animation, Video

What is ozone?

Ozone is a highly reactive gas made of three atoms of Oxygen. It is produced naturally when the sun’s rays split oxygen molecules. The free atoms combine with nearby oxygen molecules to form a three oxygen molecule, known as Ozone. This occurs in the Stratosphere and Troposphere layers of the atmosphere.

When was ozone first discovered?

Ozone was first created in a lab by the Dutch chemist Martinus van Marum, in 1785.

Health and environmental effects of ozone

The Ozone in the Stratosphere protects us from the harmful ultra – violet rays of the sun. The Ozone in the Troposphere layer of the atmosphere contributes to air pollution, damaging life forms including causing several breathing problems to human and animals.
