Geologist can estimate the age of rocks by their uranium-238 content. The uranium is incorporated in the rock as it hardens and then decays with first-order kinetics and a half-life of 4.5 billion years. A rock contains 83.2% of the amount of uranium-238 that it contained when it was formed. (The amount that the rock contained when it was formed can be reduced from the presencd of the decay products of U-238.) How old is the rock?
