Describe the process that uses carbon-14 for estimating the ages of archeological artifacts.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The process that uses carbon-14 for estimating the ages of archeological artifacts has to be explained.

Concept introduction:

Carbon-14 is weak radioactive isotope, it is also known as radiocarbon, It is an isotopic chronometer.Carbon-14 is applicable for organic and some inorganic compounds Radiocarbon form is a method that provides objectives and it age estimates for carbon based materials it origins from living organisms.

Explanation

Radiocarbon dating is a radiometric dating technique that uses the decay of carbon-14 to estimate the age of organic materials, such as wood and leather up to about 58,000 to 62.000 years. The Earth atmosphere contains various isotopes of carbon in constant proportions, through photosynthesis,...
