Strong Acid/Base

How do you tell whether an acid is strong or weak?

An acid is strong if it almost completely ionizes in a solution and the acid is weak if it is incompletely ionized in solution.

Also, strong acids have higher Ka values, so they dissociate almost 100%, while weak acids have very low Ka values, which makes them only partially dissociate in solution.
