Abstract

Random sequential adsorption of nonoverlapping rectangles of arbitrary orientation onto a continuous plane was investigated by computer simulation. It is shown that the approach to the jamming limit of rectangles with various aspect ratios obeys the scaling law OJ - O( T) - T - 1/3. Furthermore, the adsorption kinetics of rectangles approach those of line segments as the rectangle aspect ratio becomes large.
