The most often used radioactive elements used in radiometric dating are carbon, potassium-argon and uranium-lead.Other elements are not, or very rarely used.

That's called radiometric dating, or radioactive dating.

Carbon 14 is most commonly used for radioactive dating.

Some examples are carbon-14 and tritium.

No, many other elements are radioactive or have radioactive isotopes. Examples of this are carbon 14, which is used in carbon dating, Radon, Krypton, Hydrogen, Iodine, and many others.

Every element above a certain point is radioactive, like plutonium, radon, uranium, etc., but some isotopes of small elements can be radioactive as well. Like C14 which is used for carbon dating.

Depends on the isotope being used for dating.

radioactive elements

Radioactive elements are used to date the age of rocks. Radioactive elements decay according to a known pattern. Scientists can use the elements of that pattern to determine when the rock with the original radioactive element was formed.
