acids and bases

how are you able to determine weak acids and bases? what makes them weak or strong?

You can't tell by the formula unless you memorize the strong acids and bases. If the Ka value is given, a larger Ka means a stronger acid.

I think you have to memmorize the strong acids and weak acids and the strong and weak bases also for right now. The equations we will be solving out will only include that of strong as they disassociate completely or almost completely. For acids, it is stronger if the bond between the two elements is weaker and if the resulting compound is more stable (resonance).
