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?

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.

You don't really need to know what the correct orientation but you will need to know how often or "frequently" they are in the correct orientation to collide and form the product
