The rate of a first-order reaction is followed by spectroscopy,
monitoring the absorbance of a colored reactant at 520 nm.
The reaction occurs in a 1.00-cm sample cell, and the only
colored species in the reaction has an extinction coefficient
of 5.60 * 103 M-1 cm-1 at 520 nm. (c) Calculate the half-life of the reaction.
