Re: Radiocarbon Dating
Yes, the before mentioned bood "The Handy Science Answer Book" says the use
of elements are:
Uranium-238 ~half life=4.5 billion years
Uranium-235 ~half life=704 million years
Thorium-232 ~half life=14 billion years
Rubidium-87 ~half life=48.8 billion years
Potassium-40 ~half life=1.25 billion years
Samarium-147 ~half life=106 billion years
These are said to be used in dating techniques of gas formation light
emission (called thermoluminescence).
What are some other forms of dating?
