The rate of adsorption is governed by the rate of arrival of molecules at the surface and the proportion of incident molecules which undergo adsorption. The rate of adsorption (per unit area of surface) as a product of the incident molecular flux, F , and the sticking probability , S .
R(ads) = S . F [molecules m-2 s-1 ]
