the composition of ozone is O3 and the oxygen O2 present in atmosphere.considering the masses of O3 and O2 , the O3 is more heavier than O2 then also ozone is situated above the oxygen (O2) present in atmosphere. why is it so?

advanced thanks.

In general there is no separation of gases in the atmosphere due to their molar masses, mixing is way too fast (at least in troposphere).

Where does the ozone in atmosphere comes from?

actually the ozone(O3) is in stratosphere and O2 is in air OR atmosphere. though the O3 is more heavier than O2 then how O3 situated above O2 which has less mass then O3.

Seems like I have to repeat myself - twice.

First, in general there is no separation of gases due to their molar masses in atmosphere, so fact that ozone is heavier is irrelevant.

Second, please think about the question I asked, as the answer directly leads to the reason behind ozone being where it is - where does the ozone in atmosphere comes from?
