What is the maximum number of hydrogen bonds in which a water molecule could participate?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
A water molecule can participate in 4 hydrogen bonds.
This is because the 2 hydrogen atoms will form 2 H-bonds and the O atom will also form 2 H-bonds due its 2 lone-pair of atoms.
