frequency factor

For A, the frequency factor, what is meant by "correct" orientation when reactants collide versus just any given orientation? How do you know if the positioning is correct or not?

Re: frequency factor

I'm not positive, but I know that we will be given A (frequency factor or pre-exponential factor) in the problem, when asked to solve for the rate constant.
