Problem 41E

Rates of Radioactive Decay (Section)

Potassium-40 decays to argon-40 with a half-life of 1.27 × 109 yr. What is the age of a rock in which the mass ratio of 40Ar to 40K is 4.2?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

GEOL 207 Environmental Geology Atmosphere - Nitrogen (N2) = 78% - Oxygen (O2) = 21% o Photosynthesis - Argon (Ar) = 0.9% o Stable and do not want to react - Carbon Dioxide (CO2) = 0.039% o Goes up and down. Has recently been going up - Water (H2O) = 10^-5% -- > 4% Nitrogen / Oxygen / and Argon Do NOT have a GRENHOUSE EFFECT...
