# Ozone Question

Thread starter 5 years ago

Given that 1.00g of chlorine radicals can breakdown 100 000g of ozone, find the number of ozone molecules broken down by one chlorine radical.

I've calculated the number of moles of both chlorine and ozone, but I'm not sure what to do after that

Have you heard of Avogadro's constant?

After you have worked out the amount of moles of chlorine radicals and ozone.

Now multiply both moles by Avogadro's constant (6.02 x10^23) to give amount of molecules of ozone and chlorine radicals.

Finally you need to find amount of ozone molecules per radical so divide the number of ozone molecules by number of chlorine radicals

(you don't actually have to multiply by Avogadro constant as it is a ratio but I think it may help to understand.)

I think I understand now, thanks.
