In fact a formal representation of the ozone molecule would show bond polarity, i.e. charge separation. This is illustrated by simple Lewis structures, electron counting schemes, of the trioxygen molecule, which depict a
Of course the terminal oxygen atoms of the molecule are equivalent experimentally, which is also strongly suggested by the Lewis structure: there is little difference between
