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

It just depends on which bond it is because the strongest bond is ion-ion, hydrogen bond, ion-dipole, dipole-dipole, dipole-induced dipole, and London Dispersion Forces which is the weakest bond. This is just an order from strongest to weakest which you can just memorize.

You can tell by drawing in dipoles on all bonds. If the dipole directions do not cancel out completely in a molecule, it is considered polar. A nonpolar molecule will have the same atoms around it such as methane (CH4).
