1. We don't know the initial proportions of the isotopes we are comparing.

2. We are not allowing for changes to those proportions to occur other than through radioactive decay.

3. We assume a constant decay rate.

Take Newton's first law of motion: v= u + at

v= final velocity of object .

u= initial velocity.

a= acceleration of body.

t= time.

If we know v, if we know a and if we know u, it is possible to calculate t:

t= v-u/a

But what if we just assumed u to be 0 and a to have been constant? What u was much greater than zero and a had been much greater than it was when v was measured? We would necessarily get a much smaller value for t.
