Radiometric dating detrital minerals sedimentary rocks gives Freeblackchatlines
Sedimentary rocks cannot be dated directly using radiometric dating, which is based on the idea that when rocks are in liquid form, their radiometric clock resets.
IONIC BONDING: the "lending and borrowing" of electrons to achieve 8 electrons in the outermost shell; these atoms now become electrically charged or IONS.
In geology (specifically, in sedimentary petrology), the term provenance deals with the question where sediments originate from.
The purpose of sedimentary provenance studies is to reconstruct and to interpret the history of sediment from parent rocks at a source area to detritus at a burial place.
All protons have a positive electrical charge, while all electrons have a negative electrical charge; since atoms have an equal number of protons and electrons, and neutrons have no charge, all atoms are electrically neutral (the electrical charges cancel).
Atoms can be classified by the number of protons, which is known as the ATOMIC NUMBER, and also determines the element e.g.
