Solution: The steady-state stratospheric ozone concentration, which is...


The steady-state stratospheric ozone concentration, which is determined by a balance between photochemical production and dissociation, has been offset by the presence of long-lived chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) released in the troposphere through anthropogenic activity. According to the following mechanism, ozone depletion requires ________ radiation to initiate a chain reaction in which ________ serves as the catalyst.

CFCl3 + hν → CFCl2 + Cl

Cl + O3 → ClO + O2

ClO + O3 → Cl + 2 O2


A. Infrared, chlorine atoms

B. Ultraviolet, chlorine atoms

C. Infrared, chlorine monoxide

D. Ultraviolet, chlorine monoxide

E. Ultraviolet, CFCl3
