Homework Help: Science [improv/repost]

Posted by mysterychicken on Thursday, February 5, 2009 at 7:30pm.

What is the difference between an ionic bond and a covalent bond? I just keep forgetting which one is which...any easy way to remember these?
PS> I know that you're not supposed to repost until 24 hours but I really need this answer!

Would this answer work?:
In an ionic bond, the atoms are charged with two opposite ions but in a covalent bond, they are charged with the same type of ions.
Does that even make any sense?
Thanks -MC
