The reason that these elements (also known as Noble Gases) do not form larger molecules is because all of their electrons are already paired. For a larger molecule to form, there needs to be valence electrons which are readily available to form ionic or covalent bonds with other elements / molecules. 4. Every water molecule can form Hydrogen bonds with up to 4 other water molecules. This is because the oxygen in each water molecule has two lone pairs, allowing it to form bonds with 2 more water molecules, and each hydrogen in the water molecule can form a bond with another water molecule and because there are two hydrogen atoms in a water molecule, a total of 4 bonds with other water molecules can be formed. 5....
