What exactly is adsorption, I see that it says when reactants sit on the surface of the catalyst, but what does this mean?

Adsorption is the adhesion of molecules on to the surface of something, and they basically form a film over the surface of the catalyst.

Does adsorption only happen for a heterogeneous catalyst?
