    Consider a bond between two atoms, A and B. If the atoms are equally electronegative, both have the same tendency to attract the bonding pair of electrons, and so it will be found on average half way between the two atoms:

    If one element is more electronegative, it will hold the electrons closer to it, making a polar covalent bond.
