Absolute ages, or geochronometric ages, of rock can be assigned to the geologic time scale on the basis of properties of atoms that make up the minerals of a rock unlike relative dating, which relies on sequencing of rock layers (ie younger vs older), absolute dating can produce an actual age in years the number of.
