Remember that HClO4 is a strong, monoprotic oxyacid. It’s a strong oxyacid since there are 3 more O than H in the formula. 


Recall that strong acids completely dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case). The dissociation of HClO4 is as follows:


HClO4(aq) + H2O(l)  H3O+(aq) + ClO4(aq)
