Unstable nuclei decay. However, some nuclides decay faster than others. For example, radium and polonium, discovered by Marie and Pierre Curie, decay faster than uranium. That means they have shorter lifetimes, producing a greater rate of decay. Here we will explore half-life and activity, the quantitative terms for lifetime and rate of decay.

Radiometric Dating: Playing Half-life Odds

Uranium—lead dating , abbreviated U—Pb dating , is one of the oldest [1] and most refined of the radiometric dating schemes. It can be used to date rocks that formed and crystallised from about 1 million years to over 4. The method is usually applied to zircon. This mineral incorporates uranium and thorium atoms into its crystal structure , but strongly rejects lead when forming. As a result, newly-formed zircon deposits will contain no lead, meaning that any lead found in the mineral is radiogenic.

The learning objectives in this section will help your students master the following standards:. Unstable nuclei decay. However, some nuclides decay faster than others.
Roll the dice in a fun hands-on simulation of an isotope's decay to better understand the way scientists date mind-boggling old matter. A Winning Math and Geology Combo! Students will need a 'marked' dice a piece of tape on one side of each to conduct the "How Old Is That Rock? With dice at the ready, students can roll their way to better understanding of how an isotope decays.
