I wrote in my notes from the temperature and reaction rate section that the stricter the angular dependence, the bigger k is and if angular dependence is lower, A is lower. I'm not sure I wrote that down right. Can someone confirm?
The angular dependence is taken into account by the pre-exponential factor, A, which you can think of as the likelihood/probability of a rxn happening based on a collision. So when A is large, k is larger, and when A is smaller, k is smaller because k and A are directly related thru the Arrhenius eqn.
