III. Radioactive Dating A. Used to find ABSOLUTE age in years. B. Radioactive ISOTOPES in rocks DECAY away at a predictable rate.
III. Radioactive Dating 1. Carbon-14 – Used to date RECENT, ONCE LIVING things. Decays into Nitrogen-14
III. Radioactive Dating 2. Uranium-238 – Used to date very old rocks. Decays into Lead-206.
Half Life C. The amount of time it takes for HALF of the radioactive isotope to DECAY is called its HALF LIFE. 1. Half life DOES NOT CHANGE. (Thats why its on the ESRT!)
Radioactive isotopes decay from the Parent material into the Daughter Product. Original Parent Material Daughter Product
Each half-life, the amount of atoms gets cut in half.
Dont worry about the last atom. You start with so many trillions that you never really get there. (It will just decay and then theyre all gone.)
Since you dont know how many atoms you started with, a ratio between parent to daughter will tell you how many half-lives have gone by. 100% parent 0% daughter 0 half lives
One half-life. 50% parent 50% daughter 1 half-life
Two half-lives. 25% parent 75% daughter 2 half-lives
Three half-lives. 12.5% parent 87.5% daughter 3 half-lives
Four half-lives. 6.25% parent 93.75% daughter 4 half-lives
Radioactive Decay Radioactive materials decay from the “Parent” material into the “Daughter Product”. Original “Parent” Material Daughter Product.
ABSOLUTE AGE Absolute dating- used to determine the age of a rock or fossil more exactly based on the properties of atoms An atom:
Absolute Dating Radioactive Dating. Radioactivity Almost all of the elements contain radioactive isotopes Isotopes are atoms of the same element with.

Radioactive Isotopes and Half Life 1. What is a Radioactive Isotope? What is Radioactive Decay? What is Half Life? (Take notes as we discuss) 2.
Radiometric Dating Half-life. Radioactivity Radioactive Isotopes are unstable and emit/capture elemental particles, causing them to change over time.
ABSOLUTE AGE IS EXPRESSED IN SPECIFIC UNITS, SUCH AS YEARS BEFORE PRESENT. ONE METHOD OF ABSOLUTE DATING IS COUNTING THE ANNUAL LAYERS OF GLACIAL LAKE.
The fossil below is that of a Coelophysis and was found in upstate N.Y. Approximately how old is the rock?
ABSOLUT DATING Explanations collected from three online presentations.
Determining Absolute Time. Absolute Time: numerical time using a specific units like years Isotopes: Form of an element with more or fewer neutrons.
Tips on Dating. Why Date? Different methods of dating will help determine the actual age of a layer of rock or a fossil Scientists look at how much radioactive.
