Context This lesson was developed by the Challenger Center as part of NASA's MESSENGER Mission, of which Science Net Links is a partner.
Radiometric Dating Atom Decay and Half-Life Simulation.
Carbon-14 has 8 neutrons in its nucleus, along with its 6 protons, which is not a stable combination.
Radiometric dating methods In geology, an absolute age is a quantitative measurement of how old something is, or how long ago it occurred, usually expressed in terms of years.
Discover how to create new mountains, volcanoes, or oceans!
Photo Credit: Purpose To learn about sources of high-energy radiation and calculate student exposure to ionizing radiation over the past year.
Details and get access to This is an interactive exercise about Geologic Time.
Students investigate the theory and processes of radiometric age-dating of rocks.
Details and get access to Students will find two interactive exercises designed to help you learn about river processes like discharge, flooding, and flood frequency.
