Suppose the total amount, A, of radioactive material present in the atmosphere at time T can be modeled by the formula `int_0^T(Pe^(-rt))dt` , Where P is a constant and t is time in years. Suppose that recent research suggests that r=0.002 and P (present amount of radioactive material) = 200 millirads. Estimate the total future buildup of radioactive material in the atmosphere if r and P were to remain constant.

Assuming future represents a time T=oo
Amount of radioactivity,
Therefore, total future buildup of radioactive material in the atmosphere is 100 rads.
