  2. Carbon-14 is used to determine the age of dead organic matter. The process is known as carbon dating. The carbon in plants which is up to during photosynthesis contains small portions of radioactive carbon-14,the plant dies; the carbon-14 in the dead plant continues decaying hence the amount decreases. Carbon-14 has a half-life of about 5,600 years. During carbon dating a log of an old tree was found to have only 3.125% remaining 28,000 years after it was cut down.
    1. Fill the table to show how the percentage (%) mass of carbon-14 decreased over time 3marks
