Percent ionization is just asking you to find out how much of the acid actually disassociated into H3O+. We probably would only do this for weaker acids, since strong acids completely disassociate.
Hi! Percent ionization just refers to how much of the weak acid actually ionized in solution. The formula for this would be (conj base concentration/initial acid concentration) * 100%. One thing to note is that when the problem has acids, it's usually referred to as percent ionization, but when the problem has bases, it's usually referred to as percent protonation. I hope this helps!
