Examples of ionic and covalent compounds?

Ionic compounds: NaCl, KOH, CuSO4, etc. Any compound containing a metal and a non-metal. In ionic compounds, metals have positive ions (they lose electrons to the non metal) and non-metals have negative ions (as they gain electrons from the metal) Covalent compounds: CH4, BF3, NH3, all hydrocarbons/ all compounds containing only non-metals.
