The frequency factor represents how often molecules collide in the correct orientation for a reaction to occur.

Adding to the previous comment, the frequency factor is how many times the molecules will collide with the correct orientation, meaning that specific places on one molecule must collide with another molecule in a certain location. If the frequency factor is high, there will be more collisions resulting in a faster reaction and a higher k.

Hope this helped!
