A chemical formula tells us the number of atoms of each element in a compound
Ionic vs covalent
Covalent bonding involves the sharing of electrons between two or more atoms. Ionic bonds form when two or more ions come together and are held together by charge differences.
Ionic compounds are compounds made up of ions that form charged particles when an atom (or group of atoms) gains or loses electrons
In a covalent bond, the atoms bond by sharing electrons. Covalent bonds usually occur between nonmetals
