Though most atoms contain stable nuclei and do not decay, some types do.

When radioactive decay occurs, no one can predict which individual atoms will decay when.

But, for a large number of atoms, the number that will decay within a given time can be predicted.

The original (parent) atom changes into a daughter atom having different chemical properties.

(For a brief science review, see sidebar and figure 1.) The timepiece that allows dating is the “radioactive” decay of certain kinds of atoms from one form into another.
