Did you ever wonder how scientists know a fossil is 10,000 years old or a piece of paper is 2,000 years old? In this lesson you'll learn about carbon dating and how it works.

Imagine going for a hike in the mountains and finding a 5,000-year-old body frozen in a block of ice!

The amount of carbon-14 gradually decreases through radioactive beta decay with a half-life of 5,730 years.

While on a hike, a couple from Germany found what is now referred to as the Iceman.

Thus, as living things take in carbon, they inevitably will take up a small amount of radioactive carbon into their bodies.
