A quick and simple way (the quick and simple way is at the end) to determine if a molecule is polar or nonpolar once you have the Lewis structure of the molecule. You may need to watch the video on how to draw a Lewis structure. This method works with common molecules you will see in high school or undergraduate chemistry. Not to be confused with polar and nonpolar bonds. There is a "typo" at around 3:55 when it talks about the quick simple way to determine if a molecule is polar or nonpoloar. If they are different it is polar if they are all the same it is nonpolar. Thanks to liorak930 for picking up on that.
