what are some examples of covalent bonds and what are some examples of ionic bonds?

Electrons are shared in covalent bonds. Electrons are exchanged in ionic bonds. Typical ionic compounds are NaCl, MgCl2, LiI, etc. Typical covalent compounds are CH4, methane; C2H6, ethane; C2H5OH, ethyl alcohol; etc.

thanks
