When a pesticide comes into contact with skin, a certain percentage of it is absorbed. The percentage that is absorbed during a given time period is often modeled with a lognormal distribution. Assume that for a given pesticide, the amount that is absorbed (in percent) within two hours of application is lognormally distributed with μ = 1.5 and σ = 0.5. Find the probability that more than 5% of the pesticide is absorbed within two hours.
