Non-polar. Despite having polar bonds between the Be & Cls, the overall pulls counteract one another & cancel out. Try to visualize it here: Cl-Be-Cl and then, Cl<…---Be--->Cl Thus it isn't polar overall but has polar bonds connecting it together (check the electronegativities) (MORE)

Tetrahydrocannabinol is non-polar. It has a saturated fatty acid chain meaning that it is hydrophobic and therefore non-polar, since it won't bond with H2O
Triglycerides are just fats, which have both nonpolar and polar parts. The areas with carbon-oxygen bonds are fairly polar, while the carbon-hydrogen bonded areas are nonpolar…. Since there are extensive chains of carbon-hydrogen bonds in triglycerides, they are generally nonpolar and don't dissolve in water, a polar liquid. As the saying goes, "like dissolves like," and hence, nonpolar substances dissolve in nonpolar substances, polar in polar. In the case of water, you'll often hear of triglycerides and fats having "hydrophobic" tails, which refer to their hydrocarbon chains, and "hydrophilic" heads, which refer to their oxygen-carbon groups. The hydrophilic heads of triglycerides dissolve in water, but the hydrophobic tails do not. (MORE)
Detergent is both polar and non polar, it is able to collect the grease because of it having a non polar head. It also has a polar 'tail' which is why the globules of grease f…loat about in the water. (MORE)
