How does rain affect a football?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If the umpire believes the game can be played safely and well the game will continue despite the rain or snow. As soon as this is not the case, the game will be delayed. Usually if the umpire expects the delay to be significantly more than an hour, the game will be stopped.

The game is considered an official game if it is stopped after 5 or more innings of play. If the home team is winning after four and a half innings, it is also official. Whoever was winning after the last complete inning is declared the winner. If the game is tied, the game will usually be resumed at a later date from the point where it was stopped.

If the game is stopped after fewer than five innings, it is replayed from the start at a later date. Occasionally a rained-out game is not made up, if it has no bearing on the final playoff picture.

Why is a thermos flask good at keeping drinks cold as well as hot?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Because it has good insulation so it prevents boss loss and gain of heat from the surrounding ----

Well that's true, but more interestingly, it has a glass chamber inside which is smaller than the outer casing. The air between the glass chamber and the outer casing has had almost all of the air removed, and is therefore a vacuum.

This makes the heat unable to escape between the inner chamber and the outer casing, keeping the liquid hot. It also stops heat from outside being able to get into the liquid stored in the glass chamber, therefore keeping it cold.

Most of the heat from the flask is lost from the lid, since the liquid has to come out of somewhere.

What foods provide animal protein?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I will presume by "good" source you mean high in available protein while being low in saturated fats and cholesterol. The animal protein with the highest bioavailability (meaning, you digest and absorb the most nutrients) is eggs. Second would probably be fish, particularly coldwater fish such as salmon and cod. After this would be lean pork and lean beef, although they may be interchanged with lean chicken and turkey. Milk and other dairy products are good sources of protein, but they also tend to have relatively high amounts of saturated fats.

How many rainforests are left in this world?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Currently, only less than 6% of the Earth's surface is rainforest.

For more information, please see the Related Links.

There is the Amazonian one in Central and South America, One in Africa, One in India, and one in Australia.

Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a mere 6% and experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years.

What is El Yunque National Rain forest located in?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

El Yunque National Forest is located on the east central portion of Puerto Rico. The center of the park is located about 50 km (31 Miles) east of Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport, or about 60 km (37 Miles) east of the cruise ship docks in Old San Juan.

Depending on the time of day travel time can nearly double from nominally an hour to at worst 2 hours. It is a good idea to generally allow an hour and a half travel time from Old San Juan to the center of El Yunque National Forest.

The center of the U.S. National Rain Forest is 30 km (18 miles) west of Fajardo.

El Yunque is directly south of Luquillo Beach. This white sand lagoon-type beach is a must see if you take the trip out to that part of the island.

What kind of clothes should people bring to tropical rainforests?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Usually a hat but sometimes a cap. Always light long pants and never shorts (if doing climbing, heavier long pants) with leech socks if need be. A shirt (often long sleeves to protect the forearms) and a vest. Always boots! Other footware wouldn't be up to it. Sandals never because of snakes, mosquitoes, leeches, thorns and nettles etc. Some of the grasses that one passes through in clearings would cut your feet to bits if you are in sandals. Dressing in shorts, T-shirt and sandals to try and remain cool isn't really an option. Raincoat or poncho and folding umbrella. I only use the raincoat or poncho in very heavy rain as you do sweat a lot in one.

What is the prey of a jaguar in the tropical rainforest?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Like all wild cats, Jaguars are pure carnivores that feed exclusively on Meat. Jaguars are Apex Predators that are on top of their food chain. They will hunt anything that it can wrestle and kill. They usually prefer deer, capybara, tapirs, peccaries, wild dogs, foxes etc. Given an opportunity they will even kill a Caiman (A Type of Alligator) or an Anaconda. Smaller species of prey like Mice, birds, sloths, monkeys, tuttles etc are caught and consumed when they are found.

Acid rain affects trees and forests by limiting the amounts of nutrients that they obtain from the soil. Acid rain has affected thousands of acres in the United States, mainly affecting the higher elevations of the Appalachian mountains.
