Polarity of chemical bonds happen in molecules when there is an unequal sharing of electrons. 

Molecular Polarity

Concept #1: Molecular Polarity & Perfect Shapes

Both a molecule's shape and bond polarity can affect its overall polarity. 

Concept #2: Molecular Polarity

Perfect Shape I: When the central element has no lone pairs and has the same surrounding elements then usually the molecule is nonpolar. 

Perfect Shape II: When the central element has same surrounding elements and has a linear or square planar geometry.

Example #1: Determine if carbon tetrachloride, CCl4, is polar or nonpolar.

Practice: Determine if the compound of BCl2F is polar or nonpolar.

Practice: Determine if phosphorus trihydride, PH3, is polar or nonpolar.

Practice: Which of the following compounds is/are nonpolar?

I. COF2                    II. ICl2                    III. XeF4                    IV. C8H18

Practice: Determine if disulfur dichloride, S2Cl2, is polar or nonpolar.
