Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1NH3 isn't a weak acid, it's a weak base. In general, any acid has the formula HA. All acids have a proton (H+) to donate, and some other component, (A). When any acid dissocates in water, we always get\[HA(aq) \rightleftharpoons H^{+1}(aq) + A^{1}(aq)\] or you can do the more fullblown version:\[HA(aq) + H_2O(l) \rightleftharpoons H_3O^{+1}(aq) + A^{1}(aq)\]
