Cartoon illustrating absorption versus adsorption
April 27, 2009 3:22 PM   Subscribe

Years ago, I saw a cartoon using images of a man and a pie to illustrate the difference between absorption (man eats pie) and adsorption (man gets hit in face with pie). Anybody have a link to a copy?

It was a simple black-and-white line drawing with two panels, one for absorption and one for adsorption. Probably from some science magazine or professional society periodical...

Well this is the cartoon, though I dunno if it's the original source.

That's it! Maybe I just saw a black-and-white photocopy...

Here's one, but not the one you described.
