  • question_answer Can a non-polar molecule have polar covalent bonds?

    Answer:

                    Yes, it is possible in case of molecules having linear and symmetrical shapes. In them, the bonds are polar but their polarities cancel out resulting in non-polar molecules. For example, in\[C{{O}_{2}}\,(O=C=O)\] both the bonds are polar. But as it is linear in nature, the polarities of the bonds cancel and the molecule is non-polar in nature.
