What isotope of carbon is used for carbon dating - Carbon-13 - Wikipedia


In physics , different forms of the same element , with nuclei that have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons . Isotopes are distinguished from each other by giving the combined number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. For example, uranium 235 is the isotope of uranium that has 235 protons and neutrons in its nucleus rather than the more commonly occurring 238. All elements have isotopes.

Where t 1/2  is the half-life of the isotope carbon 14, t is the age of the fossil (or the date of death) and ln() is the natural logarithm function.  If the fossil has 35% of its carbon 14 still, then we can substitute values into our equation.
