WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ABSORBTION AND ADSORBTION?

Posted by: Dipanwita Das in Olympiad{RMO+INMO+IMO} 8 years ago, Total Answer(s): 4

Answer(s)

Absorption, in chemistry, is a physical or chemical phenomenon or a process in which atoms, molecules, or ions enter some bulk phase - gas, liquid, or solid material. This is a different process from adsorption, since molecules undergoing absorption are taken up by the volume, not by the surface (as in the case for adsorption)

the adhesion in an extremely thin layer of molecules (as of gases, solutes, or liquids) to the surfaces of solid bodies or liquids with which they are in contact

By: ritvik gupta, 8 years ago

Adsorption is a surface phenomenon while absorption is a volume phenomemon. It means that adsorded particles stay on the surface of the body while absorbed particles spread thoughout the volume of the body.
