When will a tetrahedral molecule be polar?
A tetrahedral molecule with the central atom bonded to four other atoms or molecules that are the same will always be non-polar because the electronegativities of the four bonds cancel each other out. Other molecular shapes that will follow this rule would be linear, trigonal planar, pyramidal, and octahedral. There are a few other molecules that are non-polar but these are the most common

Are nonpolar molecules soluble in water?
No. Water can't dissolve non-polar molecules. Water is a polar molecule. Since polar molecules can only dissolve with polar molecules, and non-polar molecules can only dissolve with non-polar molecules, water and non-polar molecules don't react together. Exception: - Some very small non-polar molecules can dissolve in water, like oxygen (O2)
