Stupid question but how do you know the strength requirement of a weapon?

Topic. I've returned to Dark Souls after a very very long hiatus, and I'm fairly low level I'm only 20 and I'm at the Burg. I've managed to summon someone and got them to kill the Burg's black knight, thing is, I can't use the sword efficiently, so that's why I'm asking. I have 20 strength, because I figured that was the stat it'd go for. Sorry for the long rant-ish, thank you for any and all answers. It's a black knight sword .w. thought I should just say it.

I got it! And now I'm one shotting enemies I think it's a sign that I've overstayed my welcome. Now to attempt to kill the Tarus.

Yeah plunging worked I actually remembered to do it. Nearly one shotted it, but one plunge and one swing did the trick.~ So dex is what let's you use high powered weapons then? I'll be sure to keep that in mind when leveling.

No, but lots of weapons have both a STR and DEX requirement. You can see their requirements in the stats menu of the weapon.
