The 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was shared by Paul Crutzen, F. Sherwood Rowland, and Mario Molinafor their work concerning the formation and decomposition of ozone in the stratosphere. Rowland andMolina hypothesized that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the stratosphere break down upon exposure toUV radiation, producing chlorine atoms. Chlorine was previously identified as a catalyst in the breakdownof ozone into oxygen gas.Using the enthalpy of reaction for two reactions with ozone, determine the enthalpy of reaction for thereaction of chlorine with ozone.1) CIOg)+O3)03(g)+ CNumberkJ
