Dear Student
Some elements  exist in two or more different forms. these are known as allotropes of these elements. Allotropes are different structural modifications of an element, the element's atoms are bondedtogether in a different manner.
Ozone (O3), is a triatomic molecule, consisting of three oxygen atoms. It is also an allotrope of oxygen.
