The lethal inhalation dose of sarin for a 200lb. person has been determined to be 0.0015mg.
Determine the LD50 of sarin that researchers used to calculate this lethal inhalation dose.

The lethal inhalation dose is calculated based on the LD50.
The LD50 is simply the dose at which approximately 50% of the population would die from its exposure. As it kills half ...
This solution gives a definition of LD50 and a brief example that describes how to calculate the LD50 of a substance from its known lethal inhalation dosage (expressed as mg/lb).
