Polar Vs Nonpolar Covalent Bonds?

Answer

Non-polar covalent bond is the bond in which electrons are shared between atoms of elements having a difference in electronegativity less than 0.5. Since the difference in negativity is very small, the sharing is not dependent on attraction of charges. Non-polar covalent bonds are formed between atoms of the same compounds and also in hydrocarbons.

A non-polar covalent bond is one in which the electrons are shared evenly. This means that there is no net charge across the molecule and it remains neutral.
