Question: What does uranium dating do?

As its name suggests, uranium-series dating uses the radioactive decay of uranium to calculate an age. When uranium decays, it goes through a series of decays until it eventually reaches a stable isotope. So, for example, uranium 238 will decay to uranium 234, which will decay to thorium 230.

What is the main goal of radioactive dating?

Radiometric dating, often called radioactive dating, is a technique used to determine the age of materials such as rocks. It is based on a comparison between the observed abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope and its decay products, using known decay rates.
