what normal annual interst rate has an effective annual yield of 7.8% under continuous compounding?

We calculate the amount after t=1 year at rate r under continuous compounding, and equate it to 1.078:
1.078=1*e^{rt}
take natural log on both sides:
ln(1.078)=r*1
r=ln(1.078)
=0.07511
or 7.511% p.a. 
thanks
