Once you heat this item again using high temperatures, the trapped electrons become excited and recombine with the item’s material.This process frees energy in the form of light, which can be measured.This isotope, which can be found in organic materials and can be used only to date organic materials, has been incorrectly used by many to make dating assumptions for non-organic material such as stone buildings.The half-life of C is approximately 5730 years, which is too short for this method to be used to date material millions of years old.

Based on a discipline of geology called stratigraphy, rock layers are used to decipher the sequence of historical geological events.

The first method was based on radioactive elements whose property of decay occurs at a constant rate, known as the half-life of the isotope.

Today, many different radioactive elements have been used, but the most famous absolute dating method is radiocarbon dating, which uses the isotope C.
