Absolute dating methods are used to determine an actual date in years for the age of an object.
Before the advent of absolute dating methods in the twentieth century, nearly all dating was relative.
Stratigraphy: Study of layers of rocks or the objects embedded within those layers.
The age of the remains of plants, animals, and other organic material can be determined by measuring the amount of carbon-14 contained in that material.
In the process of disintegration, the atom gives off radiation (energy emitted in the form of waves). Each element decays at its own rate, unaffected by external physical conditions.
