Polar vs. nonpolar

Postby Johana Jeon 1A » Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:27 pm

How do we differentiate b/w polar and nonpolar bonds?
Also, do we look at the periodic table and go based off of that?
Thank you in advance!

I am also confused on how to determine polar bonds, can someone also please explain dipoles.

I know that when there is a dipole, there is a negative charge with the atom with more electronegativity and more of a positive charge on the opposite side. That's when it becomes a polar bond.
