There are various isotopic dating methods other than radiocarbon dating, and even more in development. Some include:


Uranium Series Dating

Lead 210 Dating

Potassium Argon Dating
What is radiocarbon dating?
Radiocarbon dating is an radioactive isotope dating technique used in dating materials which contain the unstable carbon-14 isotope. Radiocarbon dating is used to determine the age of previously living organisms.

What isotope is used for radiocarbon dating?
The radioactive isotope carbon-14 is used in dating.

What is measured in the radiocarbon dating of organic materials?
Carbon 14 is the isotope of carbon measured in radiocarbon dating.

Are carbon dating and radiocarbon dating the same?
Yes, carbon dating and radiocarbon dating refer to the same test, which is the analysis of the carbon 14 isotope.

Which isotope is found in living things or radiocarbon dating?
This is the isotope carbon-14.

What forms of carbon is used for radiocarbon dating?
The radioactive isotope 14C.

What radioactive isotope is used in geological dating?
The most commonly used isotope would be Carbon-14. This method is called radiocarbon dating.

In living things what is the source of the carbon-14 that is used in radiocarbon dating?
The radioactive isotope carbon-14 is natural.

How can computers determine the age of an object?
Through Radiocarbon dating, the age of an object can be determined by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon. This method was invented by Willard Libby in the late 1940s.

Radiocarbon dating would be useful in dating the age of the earth?
Radiocarbon dating cannot be used to determine the age of fossils or "of the earth" because these materials no longer have radiocarbon or have negligible amount of radiocarbon.

How was radiocarbon dating discovered?
Radiocarbon dating was discovered in 1946 by Willard Libby.

Who developed radiocarbon foreign dating?
Radiocarbon dating was developed by Willard Libby in 1949.

What is a Radiocarbon dating specialist?
A specialist that dates radiocarbon

How can an age of a material be determined through carbon dating?
Radiocarbon dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon. Measurement of radiocarbon was originally done by beta-counting devices, which counted the amount of beta radiation emitted by decaying 14 C atoms in a sample.

What is radioactivity dating?
It's radiocarbon dating, and it's finding out how old something is using radiocarbon.
