Answer:

Dear Manisha,

Non-polar covalent compounds:

Covalent compounds are said to be non-polar when shared pair of electrons are equally distributed between the two atoms.

e.g. H2, Cl2, O2, N2, CH4, CCl4

Polar covalent compounds:

Covalent compounds are said to be polar when shared pair of electrons are unequally distributed between the two atoms.

e.g. H2O, NH3, HCl
