Can there be two or more radicals in the same molecule? All previous examples we have used in class or discussion have only described one.

From what I understand, there will only be one radical since if there were two, they would combine to form an electron pair.

Do radical electrons count as a region of electron density?

A radical is typically an odd number of electrons. if there are two then they can form a lone pair and no longer be radicals

To answer the question, "Do radical electrons count as a region of electron density?"
Yes, it is counted as a high electron density region and can be treated like a lone pair.
