What does percentage deprotonation represent?

Percentage deprotonation represents the ratio of the concentration of dissociated [H+] to the concentration of the undissociated [HA], or in other words the percentage of the initial acid that creates H3O+/H+ and it's conjugate base.

Percentage deprotonation is the percentage of the acid that dissociates and donates an H+ ion.

Percentage deprotonation would just be the molarity of the H+ ions over the initial concentration of what ever acid is being used. That will give the percent of protons dissociated into the solution.

If you were looking at it from an ICE Box point of view, the percentage deprotonation would be the final concentration of H+ (usually x) divided by the initial concentration of the acid.
