Ozone holes could begin to shrink in size.
The use of CFCs today is one of the anthropogenic causes of ozone depletion. CFCs are found in Air conditioners, refrigerators and are excellent coolants.
When CFCs are released into the atmosphere, they react spontaneously with ozone.
Ozone is made up of 3 oxygen atoms and it serves as a protective covering for the very harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching the earth. Ozone cuts off these radiation and it reflects them back into space.
Chloroflurocarbons release Chlroine atoms when they get broken down by ultraviolet rays. The Cl released produces a series of reactions in the presence of ozone.
Chlorine is very reactive as it is an halogen. It requires just an electron to complete its octet.
Chlorine freely reacts with the ozone producing a range of compounds. Most of the ozone becomes oxygen molecules.
This would deplete the ozone greatly. The increasing use of CFCs leaves holes in the ozone layer. The holes allow for harmful UV rays to reach the earth surface. This can lead to various harm on human lives on the earth surface.
This is why CFCs are not permitted in appliances again.
Increase in the rate of skin cancer. Increase in the amount of CFCs into atmosphere leads to depletion of ozone layer. Ozone layer serves as the protective layer that filters the harmful rays of sun. The ultraviolet light A and B reaches the earth's surface and due to this there are many problems associated with skin. Skin cancer is one of them.There is a increase in rate of skin cancer because of the depletion in ozone layer due to the pressence of high amount of CFCs in the atmosphere.
C) Increase in the rate of skin cancer
thats what i got on edg
CFC (chlorofluorocarbon), including freon, is used as the aerosol propellant. An aerosol is a suspension in the gaseous form of solid or liquid particles. When these compounds reach the stratosphere, UV light affects them and they release chlorine atoms. Chlorine atoms are capable of breaking down ozone molecules. With fewer ozone molecules, the ozone layer becomes thinner and harmful UV light passes through it causing many health problems, such as skin cancer.
increase in the rate of skin cancer
it increases the rate of cancer
it took the ed test.
Skin Cancer and other diseases caused by our depleting ozone layer
The more carbon dioxide
They do not directly affect people but destroy the ozone molecules in the atmosphere.
CFCs, or chlorofluorocarbons, are non-toxic substances for humans, however, when they reach the ozone layer, they react with it destroying the molecules that protect the earth's surface from the direct incidence of ultraviolet rays.
Ultraviolet rays are shortwave rays, capable of generating damage at the cellular level in organisms.
the answer is c i believe
