## Chemistry: Molecular Approach (4th Edition)

A strong acid is able to completely ionize in solution, meaning that every molecule will produce $H_3O^+$ ions. Example: HCl Weak acids do not completely ionize in solution, meaning that some acid molecules will not react and some will produce $H_3O^+$ in a chemical equilibrium situation. Example: HF
