Polarity

How do you predict the polarity of a molecule by its molecular shape?

i think some molecular geometries are made based on lone pairs and polar molecules

The shape of the molecule helps you figure out whether the dipole moments (if any) on the molecule cancel out, which will help you predict if the molecule is polar!
