#25 Homework 6th Edition

For #25, I understand that there are 6 different positions or orientations for the molecule SO2F2, but how to we find what 6 is to the power of?

It should be the power of however many molecules there are. So if there's one molecule, its 6^1 and therefore the degeneracy is 6. However if it's 1 mole of the SO2F2 then you would have 6^Avogadro's number which is 6^6.02x10^23. The question asks for residual molar entropy, so it is asking for 1 mole of SO2F2.
