I can not seem to understand what happens when you react ammonium with certain compounds. For example NH3 + Cu(NO3)2 = ???. How am I supposed to do this?

Exactly what course are you studying? Look for the word, "Ligand".

In aqueous solutions, two types of reaction may occur: 1) Since ammonia is a base, copper hydroxide my precipitate. 2) excess ammonia can give a complex with copper. Please skim your textbooks once again by referring to my clues.
