Chemistry?!?!?! Covalent bonds!! Please HELP!!!?

How does a polar covalent bond compare to the other two types of bonds?

Update:

please don't be stupid i need help not stupid answers!

    A polar covalent bond has a side that is slightly negative and a side that is slightly positive. A common example of a polar covalent bond is H20.

    A nonpolar covalent bond has an even charge on all parts of the molecule. Examples of nonpolar covalent bonds are all molecules with two of the same atoms ex) 02, H2

    Another type of bond is an ionic bond which does not involve the sharing of electrons at all like covalent bonds do.

    depends on their electronegativity differences:

    delta EN < 05 =covalent (equally shared e')

    0.5<delta EN<1.7 = polar covalent (semi shared e', more attracted to one atom than the other)

    1.7<delta EN = polar (transfer of e')

    here check it out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_bond

    water is polar covalent...

    ionic and non polar covalent

    check it..

    i just learned this not sure if i learned it right though, but there are ionic and atomic bonds

    just google it
