Question: What is the problem with using radiocarbon dating?

Challenges of the method Inorganic materials cant be dated using radiocarbon analysis, and the method can be prohibitively expensive. Age is also a problem: Samples that are older than about 40,000 years are extremely difficult to date due to tiny levels of carbon-14.

What are the different problems factors that affect carbon dating?

The factors examined are: precision of analytical techniques, isotopic fractionation, incorporation of nuclear-bomb-produced Cl4 into humus, and contamination by re- use or soil-respired CO2.
