Petrology Tulane University Prof. Thus we could tell whether the rock was derived from the mantle or crust be determining its initial Sr isotopic ratio as we discussed previously in the section on igneous rocks. A relatively short-range dating technique is based on the decay of uranium into thorium, a substance with a half-life of about 80, years. Is it likely that we will find a rock formed on the Earth that will give us the true age of the Earth? Is the wine really from this vintage, or is it a fake?
Pb leakage is the most likely cause of discordant dates, since Pb will be occupying a site in the crystal that has suffered radiation damage as a result of U decay.
Uses of Radioactive Isotopes
General similarities of the actinoid elements meteorites In meteorite: Thus the ratio of 14 C to 14 N in the Earth's atmosphere is constant. In nuclear medicine, tracer radioisotopes may be taken orally or be injected or inhaled into the body.
