Ozone is a

Answer :

Ozone layer is heavier than oxygen and is thermodynamically unstable and there is a dynamic equilibrium in the reaction between formation and dissociation of the ozone as shown:

O2 (g) O (g) + O (g)

O (g) + O2 (g) O3 (g)

(reaction is in dynamic equilibrium)

Since it’s thermodynamically unstable so it does not settle down near the earth.
