I would like more information on Absolute & Relative Dating :D

Oct 16th, 2014

Both relative dating and absolute dating are tools used to give temporal characteristics to a sequence of events. Both are attempting to get information on the history of events. 
The primary difference is that absolute dating assigns an actual time or age to an event or object. Relative dating simply says one is older than the other but no age is specified. 
Tools like radiometric dating allow some samples to be assigned a certain age to within some accuracy. Assigning a certain age or date is a form of absolute dating. 
Relative dating is a scientific process of evaluation used to determine the relative order of past events, but does not determine the absolute age of an object.
