Carbon dating model

Carbon is unique in its chemical properties because it forms a number of components superior than the total addition of all the other elements in combination with each other.

Elemental carbon exists in two well-defined allotropic crystalline forms: diamond and graphite.

Other forms with little crystallinity are vegetal carbon and black fume.

) is only 5,730 years—that is, every 5,730 years, half of it decays away.

After two half lives, a quarter is left; after three half lives, only an eighth; after 10 half lives, less than a thousandth is left.

Chemically pure carbon can be prepared by termic decomposition of sugar (sucrose) in absence of air.

The physical and chemical properties of carbon depend on the crystalline structure of the element.

Following Time's lead, we reported that although radiocarbon tests have dated the shroud to 1260-1390 A.
