Dating of objects by the use of c-14

Published: 19.04.2017

This neutron bombardment produces the radioactive isotope carbon Henry Morris as follows:

Find out how carbon-14 dating works we will examine the methods by which scientists use radioactivity to determine the age of objects, most notably carbon-14 dating.

Partial support for this work was provided by the NSF-ATE Advanced Technological Education program through grant DUE In practice, geologists carefully select what rocks they will date, and have many explanations for discordant dates, so it's not clear how such a study could be done, but it might be a good project for creationists.

The calculations given above produce dates in radiocarbon years:

Vardiman, The Age of the Earth's Atmosphere: Afterward the gas is stored in a tube insulated by Mercury and Lead, so as to minimize the chances of the sample being affected by radiations from the atmosphere. These techniques, unlike carbon dating, mostly use the relative concentrations of parent and daughter products in radioactive decay chains. However, changes in the atmosphere over the ages are a source of uncertainty in the measurements.

How to Date a Dead Thing

How accurate are Carbon and other radioactive dating methods? The word "estimates" is used because there is a significant amount of uncertainty in these measurements.

      The common application of such posterior reasoning shows that radiometric dating has serious problems.
