Only organic fossils up to 70,000 years of age. Other isotope dating techniques must be used to find the age of older fossils and rocks.

If the fossil is to old to use uranium 235 dating?
Uranium dating methods were not used for fossils dating.

Can fossils be dated?
Yes, fossils are dated. There are several different techniques which are used to determine the age of a given fossil. They can be dated according to the geological stratum in which they are found, or by carbon dating, or by other clues found either in the fossil or in the site where the fossil was found.

What two methods are used to determinethe age of rock or fossils?
relative dating and absolute dating

Why is carbon 14 used in radioactive dating?
it is used because of the rocks fossils

What are dating method of fossils?
well sometimes the U238 radioactive ion can be used to date the fossils and figure out how old they are.

How is carbon dating used to determine the age of fossils?
Carbon dating cannot be used on fossils because the fossilization process has replaced all the original carbon in the sample, leaving no carbon-14 to measure.

Can carbon 14 dating be used to date fossils?
Yes, but only fossils old of max. 50 000 years.

Radioactive dating used for finding what in fossils?
Radioactive dating is used to find the absolute age of the rock in which the fossils are found, international singles thus providing a fairly accurate age of the fossil. Please see the link provided on how the age of a fossil is determined.

What is the simplest dating method used by paleontologists?
Relative Dating, its where the paleontologists date the fossils according to the layer of soil that the fossil was found compared to other fossils that were carbon dated that were in the same soil layer.

What are the fallacies of fossil dating?
One of the biggest fallacies of fossil dating is that they use the rock layer to help determine the age of the fossils, but the fossils are also used to help determine the age of the rock layer.

What are use of isotopes carbon 14?
Used in carbon dating that is to find the age of fossils.

How can carbon dating be used to determine how old fossils are?
Carbon dating is mainly used by archaeologists to date recent finds as the technique is only accurate for 50,000 to 60,000 years in the past. To date fossils, or rather the rocks in or near where the fossils are found, we use radioactive isotopes which have a much greater half life.

What methods are used to date fossils?
Among many methods, carbon dating is most commonly used to date fossils. In carbon dating, scientists look at how much carbon is left in the fossil, look at the half-life period, and use that to see when it was from.

Why does carbon-14 not use for a index fossil?
Carbon-14 dating is not normally used to date fossils as it is only accurate for the past 60,000 years and most fossils are much older. It is mainly used by archaeologists for dating bones and wood from historical sites.
