Rated 4.2/5 based on 650 customer reviews

Radiocarbon dating is essentially a method designed to measure residual radioactivity.

No other scientific method has managed to revolutionize man’s understanding not only of his present but also of events that already happened thousands of years ago.

The method does not count beta particles but the number of carbon atoms present in the sample and the proportion of the isotopes.

The radiocarbon age of a certain sample of unknown age can be determined by measuring its carbon 14 content and comparing the result to the carbon 14 activity in modern and background samples.

Radiocarbon activity of materials in the background is also determined to remove its contribution from results obtained during a sample analysis.

Background radiocarbon activity is measured, and the values obtained are deducted from the sample’s radiocarbon dating results.
