Say you had an old bone and wanted to date it. What would you do? How would you do it? You would probably want to use the Carbon-14 method of dating things.


You would analyze the Carbon-14 material in the rock and take a percentage of it compared to the Nitrogen-14 material. The more parent material there is, the younger it is. The more daughter material there is, the older it is.
