Caption: Atoms share electrons in non-polar and polar covalent bonds. Instead of gaining or losing electrons, some atoms share electrons to gain stability. When this occurs, a different type of bond, known as a covalent bond, is formed between the atoms. If these electrons are shared equally meaning the electrons spend the same amount of time in each atom's outer valence shell the result is a non-polar covalent bond. If the electrons are shared unequally meaning the electrons spend unequal time in each atom's outer valence shell the result is a polar covalent bond.
