Molecular Meal Time....

a: Polar covalent bond ~
b: sharing some sandwich at lunch

What: "Covalent bonds can be thought of as lunch time in the cafeteria. A nonpolar covalent bond is like your friend telling you that he will trade you half of his sandwich for half of yours, as a nonpolar covalent bond is comprised of an electron from each atom that is shared equally between the atoms. A polar covalent bond is like your friend giving you most of his lunch for a bite of your lunch, as a polar covalent bond has an unequal sharing of electrons. A coordinate covalent bond is like a person who sits beside you and eats your lunch, as this bond involves one atom contributing both of its electrons to the shared pair and the other atom contributes nothing."
