Abstract

The goal of this paper is to provide data that can be used in a variety of exercises ranging from kinetics in general chemistry to advanced problems in physical chemistry. The data provided relates to ozone-decay kinetics in various atmospheres (O2, N2, Ar) as measured by ultraviolet/visible absorbance spectroscopy (UV/vis) at 254 nm. The absorbance of ozone is monitored over a 75-min time period, and by using Beer’s law the concentration is calculated. Nine data sets, each repeated three times, of absorbance measurements are provided for student exercises, and prelaboratory and postlaboratory questions are suggested.
