What is meant % dissociation for Acids? How can you calculate that?

Its how "far" the acid dissociated into its ions. (For example: a strong acid dissociates completely, or 100%, into its ions).
You calculate this by: [H3O+]/initial concentration of acid x 100

You can calculate %dissociation of an acid by dividing the conjugate base concentration by the initial acid concentration. This is a measurement of how much the acid dissociates.

%dissociation is calculated by taking the conjugate base/acid and dividing it by the initial condition then multiplying it by 100.
