Why do covalent bonds not result in a charged ion?

Covalent bonds can result in a compound with a charge, but it is not considered an ion because an ion is strictly between the bonding of a nonmetal with a metal.

How is an ionic bond different than a covalent bond?

ionic bond conects a nonmetal and a metal. covalent bond connects a nonmetal and another nonmetal.

Expain why ionic compounds are formed when a metal atom bonds with a nonmetal but covalent compounds are formed when two nonmetals bond?

In order to stay stable, nonmetals must share electrons. A metal bonding with a nonmetal is able to stay stable without sharing.

Is CsF covalent or ionic bond?
