Nonpolar covalent bonds

What are nonpolar covalent bonds and how are they significant in solving a lewis structure?

Non-polar covalent bonds are when a bond is formed when electrons are equally shared between two atoms (usually nonmetals belongs to p-block in the periodic table). The difference in electronegativity (tendency to accept bond pair of electrons towards itself) is negligible. So there no separation of the charges between the two atoms.

A covalent bond is a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms. Lewis structures are often used to depict the sharing of electrons between atoms in a covalently bonded compound.
