# Mechanism of Catalytic Reaction: Adsorption Calculations

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.
