generally looking at the structures of the molecules we can say wether that molecules is polar or non polar. generally linear and square planer molecules are non polar. further more diatomic molecules like (N2,O2,H2,I2,F2,Cl2,Br2) are non polar. all nobel gases are non polar.Yes, polar bond can give rise to a polar molecule, depending on the molecular shape, causing different types of changes.
