It is the fraction of total number of molecules of solute which combines to form bigger molecules. Let n moles of solute (X) associate from one mole of it.
It is defined as the fraction of total number of molecules which dissociates into free ions.
Let us take 1 mole of KCl and x be its degree of dissociation, then we have
