Answer:

The degrees of disassociation.

Explanation:

A strong base is a base that ionises or dissociates almost 100% in water to form #OH^-# ion. An example of a strong base is sodium hydroxide. It dissociates in water to form sodium ion and hydroxide ion.

A weak base is a base that ionises or dissociates only partially in water to form#OH^-# ion. An example of it will be ammonia. It only dissociates partially to form ammonium hydroxide.
