Carbon Within All Living Things, the Process of Elemental Half-Life, How Carbon Dating Works, and the Process of Carbon Dating Measurements

Carbon 14 is present alongside other elements within the cells of all living things. Molecules of carbon 14 are unstable and slowly lose protons allowing them to become nitrogen. This process of losing protons can be measured at a steady rate, referred to as a “half-life”, which is essentially the time it takes half of any carbon 14 molecules to decay. Once an organism dies, the carbon 14 within its tissues stops being replaced, so its density relative to other more stable isotopes provides scie...
