Homework Help: CHEM

Posted by K on Monday, November 26, 2007 at 12:06am.

Which answer best describes an O_3/ozone molecule:

1. Each atom in ozone is connected to another atom by 1.5 bonds.

2.The double bond in ozone switches back and forth between the two outer oxygen atoms.

3.An ozone molecule contains one single bond and one double bond.


I want to go with #2 but I am not 100% positive. I know that there can only be 2 different resonance structures for ozone...and what they are to look like...but is there a better answer than #2??
