Science [improv/repost]

So the question is:
What is the difference between an ionic bond and a covalent bond?
My answer is:
In an ionic bond, the electrons are moved from one atom to another. In a covalent bond, the electrons are shared.
Is this OK? Thanks-MC

  1. Looks good to me. Transferred may be a better word than moved but both will do.
