can someone explain how the frequency factor comes into play with everything?

The frequency factor represents frequency of collisions between reactant molecules

The frequency factor tells us about the reaction mechanism and angles in which the reactants collide. It kind of indicates the ratio of collisions that occur at the correct angle to form products. This is useful in the Arrhenius equation when you want to find the activation energy or rate constant of a reaction at a certain temperature.
