For this question we are asked to calculate the stanfard reaction entropy, enthalpy and Gibbs free energy

A) 2 H2O2 —> 2 H2O + O2
Why do they nt divide the result by 2? I thought that for standard G,S and H, it was all for 1 mol of product and sinxe there are 2 mol of H2O2 I am a bit confused

∆G, ∆S, and ∆H are all expressed in terms of one mole of reaction. You already account for the number of moles involved when you used the S°m, ∆H°f, and ∆G°f for each reactant/product, so the result you calculate is in terms of the reaction as a whole.
