NH3(g) + HOH(l) ==> NH4^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) although I'm not sure this is the equation you want since it is not "entirely" molecular. The equation I provided is what happens, the molecular equation could be
NH3(g) + HOH(l) ==> NH3(aq). I would write NH3(aq) as NH4OH(aq) except NH4OH has been shown not to exist.
HNO3 follows the same kind of procedure.
