Yes it depends on how many moles the question says are reacting. For example, if the question says to find q when 3 moles of C2H6 are reacting, but your balance equation has only 1 mole of C2H6 reacting, then you must multiply the delta H of the reaction by 3 to find q.
as previously mentioned, it is important to note that the units for delta H are kj/mole. Therefore, when determining the enthalpy for a specific molecule or compound in a reaction, you need to take into account the stoichiometric coefficient to determine the enthalpy for that specific molecule or compound.
