Antonio Alarcon 3/3/08 NATS 101: The World We Create Homework Assignment #6 1a) To accurately measure ozone concentration within the atmosphere, one must take into account the rates of the reactions involving both the production and destruction of ozone. I. Ozone production (photosynthesis) o UVB/C + O 2 O + O o O + O 2 O 3 II. Ozone destruction (photolysis) o UVB/C + O 3 O 2 + O o O 3 + O 2O 2 III. Ozone destruction (CFC’s) o CFC + UVB/C Cl (radical) o Cl (radical) + O 3 ClO + O 2 o ClO + O Cl (radical) + O 2 Apparent by the above production and destruction reactions, it is logical to assume that overtime the rate of producing ozone will equal the rate of destroying ozone given that both cycles, production and destruction, are dependent on one another. From this steady state, one can theoretically calculate a constant concentration of ozone upon differing conditions (i.e. temperature, altitude, pressure…). 1b) When conducting an experiment, it is necessary to run experiments unto exhaustion, or unto a point in which a large data pool is available. Not only does this practice eliminate
