Nitrogen dating dating sugardaddie
Compared to other dating techniques, Nitrogen dating can be unreliable because leaching from bone is dependent on temperature, soil p H, ground water, and the presence of microrganism that digest nitrogen rich elements, like collagen.
For instance, carbon-14 has a half-life of 5,730 years.
For all other nuclides, the proportion of the original nuclide to its decay products changes in a predictable way as the original nuclide decays over time.
This predictability allows the relative abundances of related nuclides to be used as a clock to measure the time from the incorporation of the original nuclides into a material to the present.
This transformation may be accomplished in a number of different ways, including alpha decay (emission of alpha particles) and beta decay (electron emission, positron emission, or electron capture).
Another possibility is spontaneous fission into two or more nuclides.
