### Where do we find the values for A?

Are the values for A given to us somewhere or is there a way to calculate them?

A is usually a constant that refers to the frequency of correct orientation collisions there are. However, if you have the equilibrium constant, activation energy, and temperature, you will be able to calculate the A via the Arrhenius equation.

If you are solving for something besides A, it will be given to you since the constant differs with each equation.

It's pretty much like finding a missing variable for any standard equation. As long as you have the temperature, activation energy, gas constant, and gas constant, you can solve for A. A is the frequency of collisions.

A is the frequency of collisions. You can calculate A using the Arrhenius equation given the other variables, including temperature, activation energy, and equilibrium constant.

Arrhenius equation can be used to determine A if not given.
