The units of measure for time are dependent upon the unit of measure for the rate constant.
The ratio of "N/N Carbon-14 is a radioisotope formed in our atmosphere by the bombardment of nitrogen-14 by cosmic rays.
The approximate time since the organism died can be worked out by measuring the amount of carbon-14 left in its remains compared to the amount in living organisms.

This element is locked in tiny zircons within the granite. While it stays within the zircon for a period of time, being a very small atom, helium escapes the zircon within a few thousand years.
When creation scientists studied granite samples, they made interesting discoveries.
The amount of carbon-14 in the atomosphere is, on an average, relatively constant.
Plants take in carbon-14 through the process of photosynthesis.Once an organism dies, it stops taking in carbon-14.The carbon-14 it contained at the time of death decays over a long period of time, and the radioactivity of the material decreases.Until recent years, scientists who believe in creation haven't had the necessary resources to explore radiometric dating in detail.A 10 gram sample of U-238Now that has changed, and some important discoveries are being made.In this equation, the units of measure for N and No can be in grams, atoms, or moles.
