Which bonds are stronger: ionic or covalent?

Ionic bonds tend to be stonger than covalent bonds

Ionic bonds are stronger than covalent bonds in a vacuum. However, in water, covalent bonds tend to be stronger.

Ionic because the electronegativity difference between the two atoms in an ionic bond are usually greater than the electronegativity difference between atoms in covalent bonds.

Ionic bonds are stronger because the atoms have a greater difference in electronegativity than those in covalent bonds that form partial charges.

Since covalent bonds only have partial charges, ionic bonds are stronger due to larger differences in electronegativity.

Ionic bonds are stronger because of the contrast in electronegativity.

Covalent bonds are stronger than ionic bonds in an organic system because in an aqueous environment, the positive end of water molecules would surround the anion of an ionic compound and the negative end of water molecules would surround the cation of the ionic compound. In a vacuum however, the covalent bond would be weaker than the ionic bond.

Aside from looking at the electronegativity aspect, I think of it as how covalent bonds pretty much involve the sharing of electrons whereas ionic bonds involve the attractions of opposite charged ions which makes it much more harder to break.

Ionic is stronger than covalent, but ionic in water is weaker than covalent.

If the ionic bond is in water, then the covalent bond is stronger. If it's out of water, then the ionic bond is stronger.
