I'm still confused as to what A is in the Arrhenius equation?
We never used it in our homework or quiz. Is there a time we will use it?
Is it constant for all equations?

A is the pre exponential factor. Usually it's the same in throughout a type of reaction. You could be asked to find it if you are given all the other values.

A is also usually used when a catalyst or enzyme is discussed as that is the factor that gets affected when the enzyme positions a molecule in a certain way so that the reaction will occur.
