How do covalent compounds differ from ionic compounds ?

A comparison of the properties of covalent and ionic compounds is presented below: Covalent compounds are formed by the mutual sharing electrons whereas ionic compounds are formed a complete transfer of elements.

How is an ionic bond formed ?

An ionic (or electrovalent) bond is formed between two ions of opposite charges. During the formation of an ionic bond, one of the reacting elements should form a positively charged ion (cation), and the other should give a negatively charged ion (anion).

What are the essential characteristics of ionic compounds ?

Some important characteristics of ionic (or electrovalent) compounds are :- Ionic (or electrovalent) compounds have relatively high density. In ionic  compounds, the ions are closely packed. This decreases the volume of the system, and as a result density is high.

What are the characteristics of Ionic compounds ?

When there is a transfer of electrons from one atom to another either by gain or loss of electrons an ionic or electrovalent bond is formed. An ionic bond is a bond between ions with opposite charges.
