We have read that carbon - dating process involves comparing fresh and dead samples of fossils . How will we bring fresh samples of dinosaurs for carbon dating ???

Dear Prerit,

                Carbon dating for the case of human fossils, we can have an estimate of approximate amounts of C14 present in an average human being. Based upon this value they conduct the test to measure the amount that is left and thus estimating the time for the decay and hence the time of its death.

But in case of dianosaurs they may estimate it on the basis of its size and its food habits and various other factors while proposing a approximate value and thus continuing the test but it may not give the exact time scales.


Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can. If you find any question
Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We

Is at the minimum deviation, angle of deviation is equal to angle of prism??
No that’s not always true. The minimum deviation is given when angle of incidence and angle of refraction would be equal. And that is given as: S = 2i – A hENCE not same with prism angle.
