Uranium 238 dating - Uranium–lead dating - Wikipedia


Unlike other radiometric dating techniques, those using the uranium decay series (except for those using the stable final isotopes 206 Pb and 207 Pb) compare the ratios of two radioactive unstable isotopes. This complicates calculations as both the parent and daughter isotopes decay over time into other isotopes.

…the most important are uranium-235, uranium-238, and thorium-232—and a few with a lower atomic number, such as potassium-40.
