See explanation below,

Work Step by Step

Strong acids and bases dissociate completely into ions when dissolved in water. Weak acids only partially dissociate. For a strong acid, the concentration of hydronium ions produced by dissolving the acid is equal to the initial concentration of the undissociated acid. For a weak acid, the concentration of hydronium ions produced when the acid dissolves is less than the initial concentration of the acid.
