What is the difference between polar and nonpolar compounds?

When you have a polar molecule, your bonds will not cancel out. This means that in a polar bond, the electronegativity of the atoms will be different. For nonpolar bonds the electronegativity of the atoms will be equal. In a polar bond you will have an unequal sharing of electron pairs which causes a molecular dipole.

What is a polar bond?

A polar bond is a covalent bond between two atoms where the electrons forming the bond are unequally distributed. This causes the molecule to have a slight electrical dipole moment where one end is slightly positive and the other is slightly negative.
