How can you tell if an acid or base is strong or weak?

Strong acids completely dissociate in solution. Strong acids usually include alkali metal oxides and hydroxides and alkaline metals oxides and hydroxides. For oxoacids, it should have more oxygens attached to the central atom, a more electronegative central atom, and a more stable conjugate base.

A strong acid will completely deprotonate in water, whereas a strong base will completely protonate in water
