Why is NaOH a strong base?

NaOH is a strong base because any hydroxides bonded to group 1 elements are considered strong bases.

NaOH is a strong base because it fully dissociates in water. That means there are more OH- ions floating in solution making it more basic.

Does that mean strong acids also fully dissociate in water?

Strong base because it fully ionizes in solution ( OH- is given up easily with details regarding the bond between the OH- and the Na+).

It is a strong base because it fully ionizes in water, so the OH- comes off and the molecule doesn't have anymore.
