Carbon dating inacurate who is dating john stamos
The truth is, carbon-14 dating (or radiocarbon dating, as its also called) is not a precise dating method in many cases, due to faulty assumptions and other limitations on this method.
Carbon has a weight of twelve atomic mass units (AMUs), and is the building block of all organic matter (plants and animals).
There are three forms of carbon that naturally occur forming the building blocks of all plant and animal life.
The fluctuation of the amount of C-14 in the atmosphere over time adds a small uncertainty, but contamination by "modern carbon" such as decayed organic matter from soils poses a greater possibility for error. Thomas Seiler, a physicist from Germany, gave the presentation in Singapore.
He said that his team and the laboratories they employed took special care to avoid contamination.
That included protecting the samples, avoiding cracked areas in the bones, and meticulous pre-cleaning of the samples with chemicals to remove possible contaminants.
You will see presentation 5 is missing between 4 and 6.
Compare this with Abstract.pdf, which does include presentation 5.
