Carbon 14 dating equipment

After 50,000 years, a fossil won’t have any radiocarbon left in it.

Carbon-14 will have all disappeared by radioactive decay.

Eventually, all the carbon-14 in the remains will disappear.

This principle applies equally to a person dying, a corn stalk being cut down, or to a soybean plant being pulled out of the ground.

This half-life is about 5,700 years and means that every 5,700 years the amount of carbon-14 in a fossil is only one-half of what it was 5,700 years ago.

The half-life of carbon-14 is the amount of time it takes for one-half of the original amount to disappear by radioactive decay.Call (305) 662-7760 or fill out our sample form today if you’re ready to send samples for testing.This discussion is a simplified introduction to radiocarbon dating.Animals eat plants and/or other animals; humans eat plants and animals.Therefore all living plants, animals, and human beings have the same amount of carbon-14 in their bodies at the same time.
