do you have an original graphic we could add here, relating to 'carbon-14'? please see the main Gridbuilding page for details of how to get in touch




Carbon-14 (14C) is a naturally-occurring radioactive isotope of Carbon with an atomic mass of 14, because each atom has two extra neutrons in the nucleus (8, instead of 6).


Because it occurs naturally, Carbon-14 is used for radioactive dating of such things as fossils: we know its rate of decay and we have made calculations of how much has been in the atmosphere over the last 60,000 years or so, so comparing the two gives an (approximate) age of the fossil.
