How to tell if a molecule is polar or nonpolar?

Best to memorize this one.
I would say that it’s best to memorize this. In general, a molecule tends to have an electric dipole close by where the charge distributions are unequal at both ends of the molecule. With the ends opposite in charge, it is called polar and with a uniform charge flow throughout it is said to be nonpolar. But again, I would recommend memorizing this instead! 🙂
