pre-exponential factor

So in the arrhenius equation, A is referred to as the pre-exponential factor; does anyone know *why* it's named that??

The A is named the pre exponential factor because in the arrhenius equation, it is a constant that is before the exponential part of the equation.

It is not affected by whatever is in the exponent basically.
