Carbon dating is the method of identifying the age of object which contains organic matter. This property uses the properties of radiocarbon. This technique work by measuring the content of carbon-14 present in matter and thus the age can be determined.

Explanation

The absorption of CO2 on plants takes place by striking of cosmic rays to nitrogen present in upper atmosphere and it goes on till plant dies. After the plant dies the C-14 decreases regularly and C-14 having half life of 5730 yr...
