After 3, there is half of 25% = 12.5%, and after 4 half-lives there is half of 12.5% = 6.25% of the original material remaining. Remember, the less parent element remains, the older the rock is!
In some cases, the isotopes eject particles, primarily neutrons and protons.
The nucleus contains protons (tiny particles each with a single positive electric charge) and neutrons (particles without any electric charge).
Orbiting around the nucleus are electrons (tiny particles each with a single electric charge).
Try the problems out, then check your answer below. If an element has a half-life of twenty million years, and there is 6.25% of it remaining in a rock, how old is the rock?
In a certain rock, there is 1/16th of the original parent element, and 15/16th of the daughter element.
