Question: How is radiometric dating done?

Radiometric Dating It is based on a comparison between the observed abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope and its decay products, using known decay rates. The best-known radiometric dating techniques include radiocarbon dating, potassium-argon dating, and uranium-lead dating.

What are radiometric techniques?

The technique of measurement of natural radiation in the earths surface is called “radiometric method” (also known as Gamma ray spectrometry). This is a process in which the unstable atom becomes stable in the process of its nucleus. Energy is released in the form of radiation, viz., alpha, beta, and gamma rays.

How many methods of radiometric dating are there?

The best-known radiometric dating techniques include radiocarbon dating, potassium-argon dating, and uranium-lead dating.
