The ozone composing mechanism had not been examined experimentally in both the electrical discharge stage and the ozone composing stage separately. Therefore it was impossible to determine exactly how ozone was composed and also impossible to get high yield efficiency in producing ozone. In examining the ozone composing mechanism we conducted four experiments. In part 1, we explain initial two experiments.
In the first experiment, we found that the concentration of ozone increased when nitrogen was added to a gas-mixing chamber. We therefore determined that, for ozone to be composed, a third element was required when an oxygen molecule and an oxygen atom collided.
Our second experiment confirmed that this same phenomenon could be observed on the surface of a copper anode. A computer calculation confirmed this.
