Question: How is radiometric dating performed?

Radiometric Dating It is based on a comparison between the observed abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope and its decay products, using known decay rates. The best-known radiometric dating techniques include radiocarbon dating, potassium-argon dating, and uranium-lead dating. It is based on a comparison between the observed abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope

How is radiometric dating done?

Radioactive dating is a method of dating rocks and minerals using radioactive isotopes. This method is useful for igneous and metamorphic rocks, which cannot be dated by the stratigraphic correlation method used for sedimentary rocks. Over 300 naturally-occurring isotopes are known.
