This is important because the heat absorbed in water is trying to break the hydrogen bonds between the h2o molecules. Since the molecules can absorb a great amount of heat, it means that they have a great surface tension and it takes many calories to heat it up to the point where those hydrogen bonds break and it becomes water vapor.
