What type of bonds are in a 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 oxygen 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.
Do the hydrogen atoms in a water molecule tend to be slightly negative?

Does hydrogen flouride contain hydrogen bonds?
Yes, hydrogen bonds do exist between molecules of hydrogen fluoride. This is because hydrogen fluoride molecules are quite small and are very polar due to the high electronegativity difference of hydrogen and fluorine. As a result, the hydrogen end of each molecule is slightly positive while the fluoride end is slightly negative. The slightly positive hydrogen end of one molecule will be attracted to the slightly negative fluoride end of another molecule, thus forming a hydrogen bond.

What is a molecule with unequal distribution of charge?
A molecule with an uneven distribution of charge is said to be a polar molecule. A polar molecule, because of an uneven distribution of charge, basically has an "end" that is slightly more positive and another that is slightly more negative. Let's look at an example. The water molecule is a good example of a polar molecule. It's oxygen end is a bit more negative, and the end with the pair of hydrogen atoms on it is slightly more positive. That gives the molecule an overall "endedness" with a positive and a negative end.

How does whater form hydrogen bonds?
Water, H2O, is a polar molecule in which the larger, more electronegative oxygen atom develops a partial negative charge, and the smaller, less electronegative hydrogen atoms develop a partial positive charge. The slightly negative oxygen atom of one water molecule is attracted to the slightly positive hydrogen atom of another water molecule. This weak attraction is called a hydrogen bond.
