Calculating Rate Constant using Hard-Sphere Theory

I have a problem I am unable to figure out, I keep using the hard-theory formula for "A" to get the rate constant, however the value I get seems way to small every time I try to do it. Can someone please help me with this problem? I posting the homework set its problem number 5, I keep getting (4.28x10^-29dm3/mol s) as "k" please let me know if one credit is sufficient
