Why ammonia has bond angle of 107?

Why ammonia has bond angle of 107?

In NH3, the bond angles are 107 degrees. It is close to the tetrahedral angle which is 109.5 degrees. But it is 107 degrees because the bonding pair occupies less space than the nonbonding pair.

Is it bond angle 107 48 in ammonia molecule?

In Ammonia molecule the bond angle is 107u2218 and in water molecule it is 104u221835, although in both the central atoms are sp3 hybridized. ‘Bond angle of ammonia reduced to 107u221848u2032 from 109u221828u2032, said Ramya.
