  • Carbon Dating
    • Cosmic ray protons
    • The rate at which C-14 (unstable) isotope decays into N-14 (stable) isoptope
    • Half life decay
    • Ratio of C-12 to C-14 found in the atmosphere at the time of the specimen's death
      • Constant rate
        • Half life of 5730
          • Half decayed-estimate when dead
