  1. Here is a table that lists the pKa for organic and inorganic compounds.
    http://www.cup.uni-muenchen.de/oc/trauner/files/evans_pKa_table.pdf

    For example, H2O is 15.7 and HF is 3.17. That means HF is a stronger acid than H2O. I couldn't find NH3 in that list but it is 9.25. Be sure you look in the water column and not the DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) column for the right solvent.
