## What is the equation for carbon-14?

Carbon 14 is a common form of carbon which decays over time. The amount of Carbon 14 contained in a preserved plant is modeled by the equation f(t) = 10e^{-ct}.

## How do you calculate C14 dating?

How to use the online radiocarbon dating calculator?Enter the percent of carbon-14 left in the sample, i.e., 92 in the first row.The half-life of carbon 14 is 5,730 years. You will get the calculated time elapsed, i.e., 689 years in the third row, and the samples age, i.e., 690 (+/-5) years, as the final result.More items •Apr 15, 2021

## How do you solve carbon dating?

We can use our our general model for exponential decay to calculate the amount of carbon at any given time using the equation, N (t) = N0e kt . Modeling the decay of 14C. Other radioactive isotopes are also used to date fossils.
