Can the principles of relative dating be used to determine the date a rock layer was deposited? Explain your reasoning.

I think no because realtive dating doesnt remember the exact date, it only remembers the time at around when it was formed.

is that correct ..plz help

    I think your answer is ok but I would work on the reasoning. Relative dating describes very well the ORDER in which layers were formed but not the TIME at which they were formed. Here is a site that may be useful to you.
