1. A polar covalent bond is a type of covalent bond between two atoms or more in which electrons are shared unequally. Because of this, one end of the molecule has a slight, relative negative charge and the other a slight, relative positive charge.
 
2. Non-polar covalent bond:
Bonding between non-metals consists of two electrons shared between two atoms. This type of bonding results when two identical non-metals equally share electrons between them.
