Answer:

Well, ZERO....

Explanation:

The constituent atoms of the bond are the SAME....and there is thus ZERO electronegativity difference...#C-C# bonds are thus non-polar. In addition there is LITTLE difference in the electronegativities of carbon and hydrogen, #2.54_C# and #2.11_H# on the Pauling scale....#C-H# bonds are also non-polar.

The result is that hydrocarbons tend to be non-polar molecules....
