In the end all living things have the same ratio of 14C to 12C When an organism dies it no longer takes in 14C. So over time the ratio of 14C to 12C changes. This is measurable and can be used to estimate age. When 40K is released from a volcano in lava all of the argon gas is driven off.

So brand new rocks effectively have a ratio 40K: The time it takes for half of a radioactive isotope to decay Simulation of many identical atoms undergoing radioactive decay, starting with either four atoms left or atoms right.

The number at the top indicates how many half-lives have elapsed. My presentations Profile Feedback Log out.

On impact in the cups, the ions set up a very weak current that can be measured to determine the rate of impacts and the relative concentrations of different atoms in the beams.
