What is the ionization of a strong acid?
Ionization of an acid is the extent to which it transfers a proton to water in aqueous solution. For a strong acid, this ionization is essentially complete.
Example: Ionization of the strong acid
Note that this reaction converts two uncharged species into one positive ion and one negative ion (thus, the term ionization).
For strong acids, the equilibrium constant for this reaction lies strongly toward products (
