neutron scattered and absorbed problem
What is the probability a 1 eV neutron will be scattered and absorbed passing through 1 cm of water?

One can find 1/L = 2.18 cm^1 here
http://www.lanl.gov/orgs/n/n1/panda/00326407.pdf
I = I_0 exp( x/L )
P=(I_0  I)/I_0 = 1  exp( x/L).
x = 1 cm
we get
P = 1  exp( 2.18 ) = 0.887 or 88.7 %.
