Question

Which gas in the upper atmosphere prevents ultraviolet radiations of the sun from reaching the earth?


Solution

Ozone
Ozone forms a kind of layer in the stratosphere, where it is more concentratedthan anywhere else. Ozone and oxygen molecules in the stratosphere absorb ultraviolet light from the Sun, providing a shield that prevents this radiation from passing to the Earth's surface
