Yes, every bond and lone pair are considered regions of electron density. However, a double bond is only one region of electron density and a triple bond is only one region of electron density. Hope that makes sense!
Yes, you consider lone pairs and bonding pairs as regions of electron density. You only count double and triple bonds as one region however, because you're only considering the regions of electron density not the bond types themselves.
Yeah! Electron are not locked into position, so the two electrons in a lone pair would be moving around, creating the region of electron density. This region is larger than the one found in a bonding pair of electrons, since it is only attracted to one region of charge (the nucleus), so it would be able to move more freely.

Hi! Yes, every bond and lone pair are considered a region of electron density. Every bond only counts as one area of electron density regardless of whether it is a single, double, or triple bond.
Hope that helps!
Yes. A region of e- density can either be considered bonding or non-bonding. e- in a covalent bond are counted as a single region, regardless of whether it's a single, double, or triple bond. Non-bonding regions are the lone pairs (each pair is counted as one non-boding region) on the central atom.
Regions of electron density count as both the bonding and non-bonding parts of a compound. The bonding parts, which are covalent bonds, are counted as one region of e- density regardless of being single, double, or triple bonded. The non-bonding parts, which are the lone e- pairs, are also considered one region of e- density. These e- density regions determine the molecule's shape.
A bonding area and a region with a lone pair are considered regions of electron density. Moreover, keep in mind that having a single bond versus having a triple bond doesn't change whether an area is a region of electron density. Hope this helps!
Yes electron density is pretty much a section where electrons are pretty much present. So since bonds and lone pairs have electrons they would be denoted as regions of electron density. The more electrons then the higher the electron density.
