# Do H and H form a polar covalent bond?

Jan 23, 2018

No.

#### Explanation:

$H$ and $H$ can form ${H}_{2}$, also known as hydrogen gas.

Since both hydrogens have equal electronegativity, the bond is therefore non-polar, and electrons spend equal time around each nucleus.

However, since both elements are non-metals, and share electrons in their bonds, it is a covalent bond.

So no, it is not a polar covalent bond, but a non-polar covalent bond.
