The solution is at pH 6, since the way in which pH is measured is through the H3O+ concentration, which requires that the water molecules ionize the H+ from the rest of the acid's molecular complex. Without being in solution, the H+ remains attached to the rest of the acid and no H3O+ can be measured.
Also, I am a little confused on how we know whether it's 100% associated... Can we determine this based on the Lewis Structure of the molecule? In general, what does it mean for the acid to be "completely associated"?
