Equation proof carbon 14 dating 50000

When a substance is radioactive it is composed of radioactive atoms, each atom has a certain probability that it will decay (release a alpha or beta particle and gamma rays).Think of a bag of coins, if you toss the coins onto a table each one will have a 50/50 chance of being heads or tails.Over the second half-life, of the atoms remaining decay, which leaves of the original quantity, and so on.

We could continue this process and if we create a graph of what remains after each toss it would be continuing to decrease with each toss.To understand this process we must first understand a little bit about the atoms themselves and how they get their names.Most carbon atoms have six positively charged protons and six uncharged neutrons.Following death, however, no new carbon is consumed.Progressively through time, the carbon-14 atoms decay and once again become nitrogen-14.
