### Equation 18; Steric Factor

Do we have to memorize the equation $k=P\times \sigma \upsilon _{rel}N\tfrac{2}{A} \times e^{-E_{A}/RT}$? I could not find it on the constants and equations sheet

I don't recall ever going over that equation in class and Dr. Lavelle usually emphasizes that we understand concepts rather than memorize stuff, so I highly doubt it.
