Calculating half-lives is a concept you might have learned in math. Combining the calculations with this study guide might help you understand the concept better.
Radiometric dating is the process of using the concentrations of radioactive substances to estimate the age of a material.
- Radiocarbon dating can determine the age of once-living organisms aged 100-50,000 years old using young carbon-based materials. It can also use older isotopes to determine the age of older rocks and minerals.
