What are the types of bonds in water?

The above figure is a diagramatic representation of a water molecule having polar covalent bonds between the Oxygen atom and the Hydrogen atoms.

In respect to this, what type of bond holds the atoms of a water molecule together?

Hydrogen bonds are bonds between a hydrogen in one polar molecule and the negatively charged end of another polar molecule. Hydrogen bonds allow two molecules to link together temporarily. Water molecules are made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, held together by polar covalent bonds.

How do water molecules bond to each other?

Hydrogen bonding forms in liquid water as the hydrogen atoms of one water molecule are attracted towards the oxygen atom of a neighboring water molecule; generally, a proton shared by two lone electron pairs. Hence, the oxygen atom is partially negatively charged and the hydrogen atom is partially positively charged.

What is a hydrogen bond between water molecules?

Water molecules forming hydrogen bonds with one another. The partial negative charge on the O of one molecule can form a hydrogen bond with the partial positive charge on the hydrogens of other molecules. Water molecules are also attracted to other polar molecules and to ions.
