The methods work because radioactive elements are unstable, and they are always trying to move to a more stable state. This process by which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by releasing radiation is called radioactive decay.

The thing that makes this decay process so valuable for determining the age of an object is that each radioactive isotope decays at its own fixed rate, which is expressed in terms of its half-life.

Radionuclides occur naturally and are artificially produced in nuclear reactors, cyclotrons, particle accelerators or radionuclide generators.

Radiometric dating is a means of determining the "age" of a mineral specimen by determining the relative amounts present of certain radioactive elements.

By "age" we mean the elapsed time from when the mineral specimen was formed.

All the others disintegrate spontaneously with the release of energy by processes broadly designated as radioactive decay.

Each “parent” radioactive isotope eventually decays into one or at most a few stable isotope “daughters” specific to that parent. Over 60 further radionuclides are detectable in nature, either as daughters of these, or through natural production on Earth by cosmic radiation.
