    Ozone is denoted as O3 or is also known as trioxygen, it is a triatomic molecule which consists of three oxygen atoms. It is an allotrope of oxygen which is normally less stable than O2. Ozone in the lower atmosphere is harmful to animals causing respiratory problems and also will burn some plants. On the other hand Ozone on the upper layer is beneficial as it prevents radiations from reaching the earth’s surface. Ozone is present also in low form in all of the earth’s atmosphere. It is used in many industrial and consumer applications.
    The highest levels of Ozone in the atmosphere in the atmosphere is known as Ozone layer and is present about 10km to 50 km above earth’s surface.
    Oxygen is the element with atomic number 8, Symbol O is used to represent Oxygen. Previously it was said that all the acids required oxygen in their composition. Dioxygen is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas formed at a standard temperature and pressure by combining two elements. If we go for mass, oxygen is the third most easily found element in the universe. It is also found in most abundance by mass in the Earth’s crust. The Crust mass also consists of oxygen. Oxygen is also found in abundance in human’s body mass as it comprises of most of the mass present in the water.
