# What is the carbon-14 dating equation?

A fossil is 11460 years old if it contains, say, 25% more carbon-14 than the living sample (because it contains one-fourth as much carbon, it is 5730*2=11460 years old).

This is the equation for dating carbon-14: [N(t) = N_0 \times e^{-\lambda t}] Where: - (N(t)) is the amount of carbon-14 left at time (t). - (N_0) is the initial amount of carbon-14. - (\lambda) is the carbon-14 decay constant. - (t) is the amount of time in years that has passed since the organism's death.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
