Adsorption is exothermic in nature. Give reason

  Adsorption is a surface phenomenon. The particles are attached to the surface of another medium for the reaction to take place. During this process the residual forces on the surface of adsorbent decreases which in turn decreases the surface energy. This energy appears in the form of heat, hence adsorption is exothermic in nature.
