D.3.1 Outline the method for dating rocks and fossils using radioisotopes, with reference to 14C and 40K. ____________ - K-40 - For older samples, over 100,000 years old ____________ - C-14/C-13/C-12 - For young samples, from 1000 to 100,000 years old - _____ C14 recent death; ______ C14, old!

Think of it like a teaspoon of cocoa mixed into a cake dough—after a while, the ‘ratio’ of cocoa to flour particles would be roughly the same no matter which part of the cake you sampled.

In fact, the whole method is a giant ‘clock’ which seems to put a very young upper limit on the age of the atmosphere.

Albinism occurs in North America in approximately one in 20 000 persons.

Explain how the Hardy-Weinberg equation is applied in this example.
