Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The uneven sharing of the electron pair(s) causes the bond to be slightly negative at one end and slightly positive at the other (charge separation as aayushi ^ said). This type of bond is described as polar. The more unequally the paired electrons are shared, the more polar the bond. Examples of polar molecules are: 1) water \[H _{2}O\] 2) hydrogen chloride \[HCl\] and 3) ammonia \[NH _{4}\]. Hope this helped!
