Standard Enthalpy of Formation

How do you tell what is a standard enthalpy of formation?

This is just the change in enthalpy of one mol of the substance in standard state. Standard state just means at 1atm of pressure and 298K from its 'pure' elements.

Standard enthalpy of formation of an element in its most stable form is zero.

standard enthalpy of formation is the enthalpy for a single mol compared to say a reaction enthalpy where it is an enthalpy of a whole reaction
