Types of uranium dating bitch boy dating
Over time, the amounts of Pb-206 and Pb-207 will change in some samples, as these isotopes are decay end-products of uranium decay (U-238 decays to Pb-206, and U-235 decays to Pb-207).
This causes the data points to separate from each other.
The resulting plot has data points for each of five meteorites that contain varying levels of uranium, a single data point for all meteorites that do not, and one (solid circle) data point for modern terrestrial sediments.The most direct means for calculating the Earth's age is a Pb/Pb isochron age, derived from samples of the Earth and meteorites.This involves measurement of three isotopes of lead (Pb-206, Pb-207, and either Pb-208 or Pb-204).Some of these rocks are sedimentary, and include minerals which are themselves as old as 4.1 to 4.2 billion years.Rocks of this age are relatively rare, however rocks that are at least 3.5 billion years in age have been found on North America, Greenland, Australia, Africa, and Asia.
A young-Earther would object to all of the "assumptions" listed above.
