(Polar molecules, Non-polar molecules, etc.)
4 posts • Page 1 of 1
In a molecule, nonpolar atoms tend to have a low difference in electronegativity while polar atoms tend to have a high difference in electronegativity. Also, electrons in a nonpolar molecule are shared equally while electrons in a polar molecule are shared unequally, creating a dipolar moment.
^ Just to add on, a molecule composed of two of the same atom has a nonpolar bond, since the electronegativities are the same (electronegativity difference is 0) and the electrons are shared equally.
