Whenever talking about a molecule of water, there is ALWAYS two atoms of Hydrogen and one atom of Oxygen. In a hydrate, water is part of the crystals. When a hydrate is heated, the composition of it is changed, because water is released. And as soon as the composition is changed, it is a new substance with new properties.
