Hi there! In lecture on Monday, we learned that there are two properties that make an acid strong/weak. Strong acids lose H+ easily and form very stable anions. In addition, if you are given an acidity or basicity constant, you know that the acid or base is weak because it did not completely ionize in the solution. Also, inorganic acids are usually stronger than organic acids, although there are exceptions. Lastly, regarding the pH scale, i think an acid with a pH < 3 is considered strong and a base with a pH > 12.5 is considered strong. Hope that helps!
