Radiocarbon ages less than 3,500 years old are probably accurate.
The term is most commonly used in relation to atoms undergoing radioactive decay, but can be used to describe other types of decay, whether exponential or not.
The following tools can generate any one of the values from the other three in the half-life formula for a substance undergoing decay to decrease by half.
Please provide any three of the following to calculate the fourth value.
For example, a worldwide flood would uproot and bury preflood forests.
Afterward, less carbon would be available to enter the atmosphere from decaying vegetation.
