What are the two factors that determine whether a molecule is polar?

1) The polarity of the individual bonds in the molecule; 2) The shape or geometry of the molecule. *Bond Polarity* First, to determine if a given individual bond is polar, you need to know the electronegativity of two atoms involved in that bond.

How do you tell if it is polar or nonpolar?

The greater the electronegativity difference, the more ionic the bond is. Bonds that are partly ionic are called polar covalent bonds. Nonpolar covalent bonds, with equal sharing of the bond electrons, arise when the electronegativities of the two atoms are equal.

What makes a molecule polar?

POLAR AND NONPOLAR COMPOUNDS. Bonds that are partly ionic are called polar covalent bonds. Nonpolar covalent bonds, with equal sharing of the bond electrons, arise when the electronegativities of the two atoms are equal.
