Free 5-day trial Ever wondered how scientists know the age of old bones in an ancient site or how old a scrap of linen is?The technique used is called carbon dating and in this lesson we will learn what this is and how it is used. Carbon dating, or radiocarbon dating, is a method used to date materials that once exchanged carbon dioxide with the atmosphere. In the late 1940s, an American physical chemist named Willard Libby first developed a method to measure radioactivity of carbon-14, a radioactive isotope.Radiocarbon dating is used to work out the age of things that died up to 50,000 years ago. As far as working out the age of long-dead things goes, carbon has got a few things going for it. The proteins, carbohydrates and fats that make up much of our tissues are all based on carbon.

Libby was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work in 1960.

Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere contains a constant amount of carbon-14, and as long as an organism is living, the amount of carbon-14 inside it is the same as the atmosphere.

However, once the organism dies, the amount of carbon-14 steadily decreases.

By measuring the amount of carbon-14 left in the organism, it's possible to work out how old it is.

And if you type that in your calculator you'll find that this specimen is 700, oh sorry, 7860 years dead. So that's the way that we can do these calculations. Let's do it a different, let's do a different one.

    FINALLY a website that appreciates a woman's butt and not just ordinary butts either... I canvas the mean streets of New York looking for ladies to model their booties for I'm in laundry mats, on buses, trains, hair salons looking for ladies with mean butts, that hypnotize us so. Free is new to the industry, and is definitely about her work. We received an email about her looking for work but my mind been in a thousand places these days. When the other brothers started co-signing Finesse's sexiness, I figured I better jump on it too as the vetting process ran it's course. This super sexy young lady resides in Texas and was brought to us via Tommy of Whoaboyz fame. The brother with the number one slot because his ladies show up on time and ready to work! Anyways, Alana Luv was perky, inviting and few other positive things and we must invite her back to CLUBBUTTS to explore her darker side. Happiness is, CLUBBUTTS celebrating 10 years in the biz!
