    Problem:
    Develop the overall rate equation for the gas-phase heterogeneous reaction A --> M + N, considering the following steps:
    i. adsorption of A,
    ii. surface reaction between the adsorbed A and adjacent site to produce adsorbed M and adsorbed N, and
    iii. desorption of M and N
    Assume step (ii) is controlling.
