Nonpolar Covalent Bond is a chemical bond between two atoms that share electrons equally
It is like a married couple with a joint bank account.
NON-POLAR COVALENT BOND
The electrons are shared at equal distance.
The atoms are equally attracted
They both have more or less the same pull so the electronegativity difference is small.
The electrons are equally shared, there is no charge separation (dipole moment)
Nonpolar molecules are hydrophophic
Since nonpolar molecules don’t have charge seperation, they are so tightly bonded, they cannot interact with water.
Non-polar covalent bond electronegativity scale
An example of non-polar bond, carbon to carbon
Non-polar covalent bonds tend to form between two very similar atoms. Their electronegativity value is small in comparison to other bonds.
