The amount of C-14 remaining in a charcoal sample from an archaeological site in New Mexico was determined to e 23.3% of the original quantity. the half-life of C-14 is 5730 years. How old was the campsite?
Please see the attached file.
The process of radioactive decay is generally a first-order process, which is described by:
Ao = ...
The solution provides detailed calculations and explanations on the concepts of half life and carbon dating.
