Ka for strong/weak acids

Postby Malia Shitabata 1F » Sat Dec 07, 2019 5:30 pm

Is Ka given if it's a strong or a weak acid? Because for some reason on one of my notes I wrote Ka is never given for a weak acid, but on another I wrote if it's given it's for a weak acid and now I'm not sure which one is correct.

it is given for a weak acid because we assume that strong acids are 100% dissociable
