Consider a situation in which a Uranium deposit is laid down in the strata and quickly isolated geologically. Uranium decays to Lead with a half-life of 100,000 years. (Note the actual half-life is different, but use this fictional value for this test question) If the deposit remains isolated for 400,000 years and is then uncovered and analyzed, what is the expected Uranium: Lead ratio?
