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

If they give you a table of the dissociation constants, then you can easily determine which ones are stronger or weaker by looking at the numbers.
Generally, you just have to memorize the strong acids, such a H2SO4, HCl, etc.

The Ka values, dissociation constants, will determine how strong or weak an acid or base is.
