LD50 is the dose of a chemical calculated to be lethal to 50 percent of the organisms in a specific test situation. For comparative purposes, the LD  50
for aspirin is 1240 mg/kg (moderately toxic) and for table salt is 3320 (moderately toxic).
LC50 is the concentration of a chemical in air (inhalation toxicity) or water (aquatic toxicity) that will kill 50 percent of the organisms in a specific
test situation.
