Dehydrogenation of cyclohexane to benzene

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

Dehydrogenation of cyclohexane to benzene

For dehydrogenation, is the general thing to do is to add H2(g) to the product side of the reaction?

Yep.
And make sure it's always 2 hydrogen atoms (i.e. H2)
