Im unsure as to when to use avogadros number in the exponent of W in the Boltzmann equation for entropy

To solve for W, you need to find X^N, with X being the number of possible orientations and N being the total number of molecules. You would use Avogadro's number to solve for N only if you are provided a value in grams or moles, because your goal is to find the number of molecules.
