This question is a lazy question from the OP. He did not do any research on his own. The problem can easily be solved by using a dictionary. Absorbtion is a common error and it is not present in a dictionary. So if he tried, he could get the answer himself. Hence I suggest this question should be closed in no time.
In theory, yes. But the author made it clear that his source material was not clear (or possibly mistaken) on the matter. So it isn't a dictionary question, per se.
The problem was when the user said "I read some articles," nobody inquired where those articles were. By looking at the source material, the community could have cited the error cleared up the confusion. But I suspect there wasn't any such material. In that case, you could simply refer them to a dictionary and politely close it as off topic.
