Expert Answer:

When we talk about acids, It is a general case that organic acids are weak and mineral acids are strong. But it is not true for all case.
Carbonic acid is weak acid because it dissociates partially (that is, about 1 out of 100 molecules separates from its hydrogen ion). In carbonic acid solution, there is a large number of undissociated H2COmolecules, and just a few H+ and HCO3- ions.
