British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Radio carbon dating determines the age of ancient objects by means of measuring the amount of carbon there is left in an object. In , he won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. This is now the most widely used method of age estimation in the field of archaeology. Certain chemical elements have more than one type of atom.

Radiometric dating

Radiocarbon dating also referred to as carbon dating or carbon dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon , a radioactive isotope of carbon. The method was developed in the late s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby , who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in It is based on the fact that radiocarbon 14 C is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen. The resulting 14 C combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide , which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis ; animals then acquire 14 C by eating the plants. When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and thereafter the amount of 14 C it contains begins to decrease as the 14 C undergoes radioactive decay.

The Story of Carbon Dating

It is simply called as radiocarbon dating or Carbon dating. Carbon is a radioactive isotope of carbon, with a half-life of 5, years. It decays within fixed rate of time. The carbon decays at this constant rate. It estimates the date at which an organism died by measuring the amount of its residual radiocarbon.

This is how carbon dating works: Carbon is a naturally abundant element found in the atmosphere, in the earth, in the oceans, and in every living creature. C is by far the most common isotope, while only about one in a trillion carbon atoms is C C is produced in the upper atmosphere when nitrogen N is altered through the effects of cosmic radiation bombardment a proton is displaced by a neutron effectively changing the nitrogen atom into a carbon isotope. The new isotope is called "radiocarbon" because it is radioactive, though it is not dangerous. It is naturally unstable and so it will spontaneously decay back into N after a period of time.
