Not quite? The atoms in a molecule are bonded together and share electrons. However, sometimes one atom has a higher electronegativity, and thus, pulls the electrons closer to itself. Because the electron is closer to it, that atom has a partial negative charge. On the other hand, the atom whose electron is being pulled away partially loses the negative charge of the electron. This atom now has a partial positive charge.
