Percent ionization shows how much something dissociated. It can be calculated by taking the concentration of its ions divided by the original compound and multiplied by 100. For instance, weak acids will have a varying percent ionization because only a small percent of it will dissociate. Percent ionization is helpful because it affirms whether something is a strong or weak acid/base. A high percentage means higher dissociation and a lower percentage means lower dissociation.

In class Dr. Lavelle stated that "Ba(OH)2 (aq) is a strong base, essentially completely ionized."
To completely ionized means to completely dissociate. For instance, BaOHsub2 will dissociate completely into Ba2+ and OH-
