Acids and Bases

Ka and Kb are only considered primarily when referring to weak acids and bases, right?

Hi, HanSitoy,
Yes. As strong acids and bases completely dissociate in water, there would be no such thing as Ka or Kb, as there would be no reactants left.

Remember in class I said don't look for Ka or Kb values for strong acids and bases as you won't find them.
