Hydrogen bonding will result in the water tension of water, and the thermal properties of water. A hydrogen bond, for those who don’t know, is able to allow the molecules in something - such as water - to have a good, strong bond. It’s hard to break these kinds of bonds. So, upon realizing how many times a molecule can form a bond, it should be noted that there are many, many, many hydrogen bonds within a pot of water. Hence, why boiling water can be a difficult task for those without a lot of patience.
Otherwise, water would be easier to boil, and would probably boil at the hot setting on all our faucets if enough of the hydrogen bonds were broken before the water got to the water heater.
