Dear Student

Ozone is a molecule of oxygen with 3 atoms its formula is O3. The ultra violet radiations split oxygen into free oxygen atoms, these atoms combine with oxygen molecules to form ozone.
UV
O2 ------------------> O + O
rays
O2 +O ------------------> O3( Ozone )

Ozone Ecosystem:
At ground level ozone is poisonous but at higher level it is very useful as it protects all living organisms from harmful UV radiations of the sun. It doesnt allow , the ultra violet radiations to enter the surface of earth. The UV radiations cause ionizing effect that leads, to skin cancer in human beings.

Thanks
