Criteria for carbon14 dating the material to be dated must be organic the material must be less than 80000 years old the organism to be tested must have gotten its c14 from the atmosphere the sample has remained chemically and physically a closed system since its emplacement.
Basics of radiocarbon dating the term radiocarbon is commonly used to denote 14c an isotope of carbon which is radioactive with a halflife of about 5730 years 14c is produced by cosmic rays in the stratosphere and upper troposphere.

Radiocarbon dating using accelerator mass spectrometry ams differs from the decay counting methods in that the amount of 14 c in the sample is measured directly rather than by waiting for the individual radioactive decay events to occur this makes the technique 1000 to 10000 times more sensitive than decay counting.
Carbon dating pdf carbon with 6 protons and 8 neutrons is called carbon14 14cthis is an unstable radioactive isotopeabout 1 in 1012 carbon atoms in the atmosphere is 14c.
Measuring the carbon14 present in a buried piece of wood provides a measurement of the time elapsed since it was part of a living tree percent of carbon 14 remaining in buried log wood wood wood at age 0 years the log has its full component of c14 after 1 halflife 5370 years half of the c14 has been lost.
