Adsorption and diffusion

  1. Jul 27, 2010 #1
    Heres a short question, How does diffusion affects the rate of adsorption?.
    If the diffusivity of a fluid increases, will the rate of adsorption increase or decrease?
    Thanks in advance

    i think that if the diffusivity of a fluid increases adsorption will decrease
