There are several common radioactive isotopes that are used for dating rocks, U is the best isotope for radioactive dating, particularly of older fossils and rocks. Although all atoms of a given element have the same atomic number.

DK Science: Dating Fossils

The Age of Dinosaurs was so many millions of years ago that it is very difficult to date exactly. Scientists use two kinds of dating techniques to work out the age of rocks and fossils. The first method is called relative dating.

Many rocks and organisms contain radioactive isotopes, such as U and C - Perhaps the most widely used evidence for the theory of evolution through natural selection is the fossil record.

Radiometric dating , radioactive dating or radioisotope dating is a technique which is used to date materials such as rocks or carbon , in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed. The method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material to the abundance of its decay products, which form at a known constant rate of decay. Together with stratigraphic principles , radiometric dating methods are used in geochronology to establish the geologic time scale. By allowing the establishment of geological timescales, it provides a significant source of information about the ages of fossils and the deduced rates of evolutionary change. Radiometric dating is also used to date archaeological materials, including ancient artifacts. Different methods of radiometric dating vary in the timescale over which they are accurate and the materials to which they can be applied.

The age of fossils can be determined using stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, and radiocarbon dating. Paleontology seeks to map out how life evolved across geologic time. A substantial hurdle is the difficulty of working out fossil ages.

  3. Crescent L. says:

    One of the most commonly used methods for determining the age of fossils is via radioactive dating a.

  4. Brandon T. says:

    Geologists use radiometric dating to estimate how long ago rocks formed, and to infer the ages of fossils contained within those rocks.
