An effective collision is a physical collision between reacting elements, compounds, or ions that results in the breaking of old bonds and the formation of new ones. 
An effective collision requires 2 conditions:
                                1.  High enough kinetic energy to overcome the repulsive forces of the 
                                     cloud of electrons all chemical species have on their outside.
                                    – if the reactants are not free atoms then some energy is needed to be consumed to
                                       break the bonds.
                                2.  Correct orientation of the reacting chemicals.  Larger molecules especially
                                      have areas where chemical reactions can and cannot occur.  Thus the 
                                      collisions of the reacting particles can occur at certain positions allowed
                                      by the second law of thermodynamic.
           Kinetic Energy factor:
            Orientation Factor:

When Effective collision are increased then the rate at which the chemical reactions occur also increases.  
Now in general or statistically, if we increase the frequency of collisions, we will increase the number of effective collisions.  The factors that will increase the frequency of collisions include:
    1.  Temperature – particle motion (velocity) is proportional to temperature:
                                                           Average Speed (velocity)    =    urms = √3RT/M
                                The faster reactants move the higher the frequency of collisions.
    2.  Pressure – If a reactant is a gas then increasing its partial pressure or decreasing its volume of the                                   reactant container will increase the frequency of the collisions.
    3. Catalyst –  Catalysts will provide a new reaction mechanism that will have a Net lower Ea (activation  
                               energy)  or will help with the orientation like biological enzymes or metal catalysts. 
                               Catalysts lowers the energy requirement to start reactions and thus makes the frequency                                                                     of  effective collisions increases with increasing the the overall frequency of collisions.                                                                           It increases the percentage of effectiveness of total collisions.

    4.  Surface area –  powdered forms of reactants will increase the frequency of collisions more than                                                           reactants  
                                  in solid lumps because more reactants are exposed to collisions.

    5.   Concentrations   The amount of available reacting particle. will affect the frequency of                                                                              collisions. 
    6. Nature of Reactants – Ionic compounds react faster than covalent compounds.
