### 4F.13

For this problem, why do I have to multiply the - change in enthalpy of fusion by the amount of moles? I thought enthalpy was a state function why does it have to be multiplied by the amount of moles of H20?

The units for change in entropy is J/K. That's why we multiply by moles to cancel it. I also think you're confusing state function with intensive property. A state function doesn't necessarily mean it is intensive. Change in entropy definitely depends on how many moles of substance we have.

The enthalpy is a state function, but it doesn't mean that it isn't dependent on amount there. A state function just means that the enthalpy value calculated from the reaction is independent of how the reaction got there.
