Two adaptations of the polar bear are its white fur and its black skin. The fur, which is actually transparent, reflects sunlight and camouflages the bear as it makes its way along ice floes in the arctic. The bear's black skin absorbs sunlight and keeps it warm.
Polar bears have a variety of adaptations that allow them to survive in their Arctic homes. While many of their adaptations help them to hunt more effectively, other adaptations allow the bears to survive in the frigid temperatures. However, some of the most important adaptations polar bears have ar
Electrical outlets in Australia are Type I Australian AS-3112 which have a different plug configuration than American plugs, requiring an adapter to let them fit together. Additionally, the electrical current is different in Australia. Some appliances are designed to work with both, but if not a vol
According to Polar Bears International, polar bears have adapted to challenges facing the species since it evolved and are currently in the process of adapting to new challenges, such as climate change. According to Defenders of Wildlife, polar bears have thick fur and blubber that adapt them to the
When traveling to Mexico, a Type A JIS C 8303/NEMA 1-15 plug adapter or a Type B NEMA 5-15 adapter may be needed for electrical compatibility, as of 2015. These adapters assist with either polarization or grounding of an appliance.
Several adaptations have allowed polar bears to live in the Arctic, primarily their two thick layers of fur for insulation. With their thick fur, polar bears' metabolic rate and body temperature will not drop even when the temperature drops far below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Polar bears also have tiny
Adaptors that convert a single outlet to a two-, three- or six-plug outlet, travel adaptor plugs, socket-to-plug adaptors, and outlet adaptors with USB ports are some of the different types of plug outlet adaptors. There are also variations within each of these types.
Install a 110-volt polarized electrical plug by connecting the white wire to the steel or chrome-plated screw, the black wire to the brass screw and the bare ground wire, if it is used, to the green screw. If installing a plug on an appliance where the wiring is not color coded, observe the connecti
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a polar molecule. Polar molecules are made up of atoms with different electronegativities arranged asymmetrically around a central atom. Since oxygen is more electronegative than carbon, the carbon monoxide molecule is polar.
Dryer plug adapters can be purchased through online retailers such as Home Depot, Sears and Steam-Bright. As of March 2015, the Sears website carries at least five different types of dryer plug adapters that range in price from about $10 to $15.
