By determining the amount of the parent and daughter isotopes present in a sample and by knowing their rate of radioactive decay (each radioisotope has its own decay constant), the isotopic age of the sample can be calculated.

Here I want to concentrate on another source of error, namely, processes that take place within magma chambers.The last modification to the geologic time scale of Figure 1 was in the 1930s, before radiometric dating was fully developed, when the Oligocene Epoch was inserted between the Eocene and the Miocene.Although early stratigraphers could determine the relative order of rock units and fossils, they could only estimate the lengths of time involved by observing the rates of present geologic processes and comparing the rocks produced by those processes with those preserved in the stratigraphic record.Shortly after Becquerel's find, Marie Curie, a French chemist, isolated another highly radioactive element, .The realisation that radioactive materials emit rays indicated a constant change of those materials from one element to another.
