Answer to Question #161624 in General Chemistry for Lyndale

Question #161624

There are two different forms of the element oxygen in our atmosphere, the "atmospheric oxygen" our body uses for cellar respiration (O2) and Ozone (O3), a major component of smog. The two substances are both made of only oxygen atoms but have vastly different properties, which of the following are likely to account for this based what we have learned thus far? (Select all that apply)



The individual bonds in ozone are more polar than those oxygen (O2).



The molecules O2 and O3 have different properties because of variations in their molecular geometries.



The additional 6 electrons in ozone can't be easily/equally distributed around a single Lewis structure.



The structure of one of the molecules has a less symmetrical distribution of electrons/atoms.



The bond angles in Oare larger than in O2
