how can you identify if a molecule is a strong acid, strong base, weak acid, or weak base? is it just memorization or can you use the periodic table trends?

The recognized strong bases and acids are not a lot. They're easily recognizable. Some strong bases are KOH, NaOH,Ba(OH)2,CsOH, Sr(OH)2,Ca(OH)2,LiOH, RbOH. Some Strong Acids are HI, HClO4, HCl, H2SO4, HNO3, HClO3.
