Solution

Water (H2O) is made of Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Valency of Hydrogen is 1, and valency of Oxygen is 2.

Valency of one Hydrogen atom = 1

Valency of one Oxygen atom = 2

Therefore, to balance the valency of Oxygen atom, 2 atoms of Hydrogen atoms are required.

Hence, 2 atoms of Hydrogen will combine with 1 atom of Oxygen to form one molecule of water with the chemical formula H2O.
