How is carbon 14 dating done Sex live chat free video usa
So, you might ask, why is this article about carbon-14 dating of dinosaurs?Wouldn’t the dinosaurs be too old for carbon-14 dating to work on them? That statement would be true if the dinosaurs were really millions of years old.Also, this assumes that no natural process is depositing extra carbon-14 in the animal’s remains.Assuming no intrusion of carbon-14 from external sources, the existing amount of carbon-14 resident in the animal’s remains will decay, assuming the current known decay rate.
The dinosaur dates reported below and discussed in the AOGS 2012 paper discussed throughout this article, included triceratops, hadrosaur, allosaurus, and acrocanthasaurs.Dinosaurs supposedly died out 65 million years ago. Carbon-14 dating was recently performed on dinosaur fossils,1 and the results were presented at the Western Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 2012, a gathering of approximately two thousand scientists.1 The carbon-14 dating involved precautions against contamination.Several tests were done by the University of Georgia using accelerator mass spectrometry.No, the University of Georgia had extended the maximum limit up over 50,000 years, and the ages were all well below this. After all, even though these ages are much younger than conventional ages, many creationists believe life on earth to be much younger than even the reported carbon-14 ages of these dinosaur fossils.This question will be dealt with in a later section of this article.
