Why are the units for entropy sometimes J/K and other times J/K/mol?

I believe it depends on whether the question is asking you for the entropy per mole of the substance or not.

Yeah I think the standard units are just J/K and J/K/mol is used when the question asks for the entropy per mole.

sometimes per mole means per the coefficient of each element of the equation.
