Is SiO2 Polar or Nonpolar? (Silicon Dioxide)

SiO2 doesn’t exist as a molecule rather exists as network of Si and O bonds with Si bonded to four O atoms. SiO2 simply denotes their ratio in the complete structure. Si−O bonds are very polar but there are four Si−O bonds which cancel the dipole, making the structure as a whole, non-polar.
