Every 5,730 years, the radioactivity of carbon-14 decays by half. That half-life is critical to radiocarbon dating. To date an object, researchers use mass spectrometers or other instruments to determine the ratio of carbon-14 and carbon-12. The result is then calibrated and presented along with a margin of error.
