Co­smic rays enter the earth's atmosphere in large numbers every day.For example, every person is hit by about half a million cosmic rays every hour.The ratio of normal carbon (carbon-12) to carbon-14 in the air and in all living things at any given time is nearly constant.

To check on the method before applying it on various historical and paleontological material, Libby chose material of Egyptian archaeology, under the assumption that no other historical material from over 2,000 years ago is so secure as to its absolute dating.(For brevity's sake, hereafter I will refer to the parent isotope as ).In addition, it requires that these measurements be taken from several different objects which all formed at the same time from a common pool of materials.This is calculated through careful measurement of the residual activity (per gram C) remaining in a sample whose age is Unknown, compared with the activity present in Modern and Background samples. Thus 1950, is year 0 BP by convention in radiocarbon dating and is deemed to be the 'present'.You can get an idea of the relationship between C14 and age at the Carbon Dating calculator page. 1950 was chosen for no particular reason other than to honour the publication of the first radiocarbon dates calculated in December 1949 (Taylor, 19).Suess explained the phenomenon by the fact that the increased industrial use of fossil carbon in coal and in oil changed the ratio between the dead carbon C12 and the C14 (radiocarbon) in the atmosphere and therefore also in the biosphere.
