Both CO2 and N2O are linear but dipole moment of CO2 is zero but for N2O it is non-zero, why?

The answer lies in the structure of these molecules, CO2 is symmetrical molecule while N2O is unsymmetrical, thus for N2O, dipoles do not cancel each other, leaving the molecule with a resultant dipole, while the bond moment of CO2 cancel each other, so CO2 has no net dipole moment.
