Ozone is known to cause respiratory problems in humans and to damage plants. However, the ozone layer also protects Earth. Explain the locations ozone can be found, how ozone is helpful, how it is harmful, and what causes the depletion of the ozone layer.

  1. You want a complete paper on ozone. I doubt that anyone here will write your paper for you. I suggest you Goggle ozone. There will be enough information there that you can write a good one. Remember to give credit to the articles you have read in order to write the paper.

  2. The Ozone (O₃) is a layer present in the stratosphere of the atmosphere. It absorbs acts as a shield and protects us by absorbing the harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation coming from the sun. However, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are chemicals which are used in refrigerators, spray cans and fire extinguishers. When CFCs reach the stratosphere and exposed to UV radiation as a result chlorine is released, the chlorine reacts with the oxygen atoms in ozone and cause depletion of ozone layer.

  3. Thank you, Suwwoop for helping other students. DrBob222 thank you for help as well. I would highly go with Suwwoop's answer, but change a few words here and there so it doesn't seem to obvious you copied. I understand that you needed help on this one, Shrek. :)

  8. The ozone layer is found in the stratosphere. Ozone helps by filtering out harmful ultraviolet radiation so the radiation doesn't harm humans. Ozone is harmful when a human inhales it causes chest pain and damages the lungs. The presence of chlorine-containing source gases (primarily CFCs and related halocarbons). In the presence of UV light, these gases dissociate, releasing chlorine atoms, which then go on to initiate ozone destruction. try this yall
