The strength of a base is determined by two main factors:
1. the ease with which the lone pair picks up a hydrogen ion
2. and the stability of the ions that are being formed.
The strength of a base is determined by how strongly the base disassociates between the cation and hydroxide ion (OH-). Strong bases disassociate 100% in 0.01M solutions. Examples are LiOH and NaOH. Comparatively, weak basis generate their OH- ions through interaction with water, versus completely on their own with strong bases.
