How can we test the accuracy of radioactive dating? I am trying to write an experiment to test the accuracy of radioactive dating. So can you please help me write an experiment?

HI Edig,

Can you please elaborate on what aspects of radioactive dating you want to test? A number of factors can influence the validity of the results. The more details you provide, the better we will be able to help you!
All the best,
Terik
