(Polar molecules, Non-polar molecules, etc.)

When you're doing polar/nonpolar problems, it is important to think of the 3D model/shape because you could see that no matter where you put the H or Cl, dipole moments will not cancel each other. If you only look at the Lewis structure, then you can get confused because it would look like they would cancel. In this case, the shape would be a tetrahedral, so there is no way that the moments would be opposite of each other and therefore cancel.
