How many water molecules can bond to another water molecule?
One water molecule may surround by four other water molecules tetrahedrally as in case of ice.

One. H-O-H. Each hydrogen atom bonds once.
2 covalent bonds
A single water molecule can make three to four hydrogen bonds. A single water molecule can usually make three hydrogen bonds but in some cases it can make up to four. Hint: I…f your high school Biology teacher is asking you this question the number of hydrogen bonds a molecule of water can make is almost always three (just remember one bond for each element).
A water (H2O) molecule is held together by covalent bonds. Since oxygen has a higer electronegativity than hydrogen, the bonding electron pairs tend towards the oxygen atom, m…aking the oxygen atom a slight negative pole and the hydrogen atoms positive poles. With the additional V shape of the molecule that comes from oxygen's free electron pairs, the slightly polar bonds make the molecule a dipole with the negative pole on oxygen's side and the positive pole in the center between the hydrogen atoms. (This polarity is why a stream of water can be manipulated with a magnet.) The H2O molecule does not conduct electricity as there are no delocalised electrons.
The bond between the hydrogen atom of one water molecule and the oxygen atom of another water molecule is made possible by?
The polarity of the water molecule
hydrogen bonds. In water, the 2 hydrogen atoms are slightly positive while the oxygen is slightly negative. The two hydrogen atoms will align themselves at one end of the ox…ygen atom making that side of the molecule slightly polar positive and the side without the hydrogen ions slightly polar negative. Thus, when two H2O molecules are next to each other, the slightly negative side of one molecule is attracted to the slightly positive side of the other water molecule and this attraction is called a hydrogen bond.

The water molecule's bond angle is about 104.45 degrees.
A hydrogen bond attracts one water molecule to another.
hydrogen can form 4 bonds with a molecule of water due to presence of a pair of lone pairs on oxygen atom.
There is a covalent bond beween the oxygen atom and each of the hydrogen atoms. This bond is polar. other types of bonding can occur- covalent and ionic.
Three. One bond oxygen to hydrogen, two bonds hydrogens to oxygen's.
Water molecules are polar- meaning they have a negatively charged end and a positively charged end. The electrons in the bonds between the Hs and the O are more towards the O,… making it more negative, and the Hs more positive. These charges are like the charges on magnets, and the opposites attract each other by a minor force. These attractions are how water molecules bond, called Hydrogen Bonding. It is common in many molecules, but especially water.
