Hydrogen Bonds - Hydrogen bonds are similar to post-it notes. They stick when you want them to stick, and when you unstick them you cannot tell where they were stuck. Have you ever thought what holds together all the atoms in your body or in a tree? Mostly small forces called hydrogen bonds. The pale blue color of ice is due to hydrogen bonding of water.
