  Room temperature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Room temperature, in laboratory reports, is taken to be roughly 21–23 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit), or 294–296 kelvins.
In describing an experiment, when researchers specify its temperature no more precisely than as "room temperature," this implies they have assumed that temperature differences of a few degrees do not matter to the phenomenon or question they were investigating.
Researchers choose to study a process outside its natural temperature range when they expect that the answer to their specific question ("What is the product of this enzymatic reaction?") will be the same at room temperature as it would have been had they conducted their experiment at a more naturalistic temperature.

In physics, temperature is the physical property of a system which underlies the common notions of "hot" and "cold"; generally the material with the higher temperature is said to be hotter.
Temperature is an intrinsic property of a system, meaning that it does not depend on the system size or the amount of material in the system.
The temperature 0 K is called absolute zero and corresponds to the point at which the molecules and atoms have the least possible thermal energy.

Stability of the compartment temperature is necessary to insure accuracy of ambient temperature detection.
If the average compressor off time is increasing, then the ambient is regarded as falling, while the average compressor on time is increasing it is then determined that the ambient temperature is regarded as rising.

 Klein, Wallin, and Buoncristiani, "Addressing Ambient Temperature Variation Effects on Sizing Precision of ...
Ambient temperature during the runs was monitored by placing a temperature gauge (Omega Engineering, Stamford, Connecticut) adjacent to the 310 Genetic Analyzer.
The ambient temperature over the two-day run ranged from 16°C to 20°C. Precision was estimated by calculating the standard deviation at each of the 118 alleles after sizing with the Local Southern method.
To examine the effects of ambient temperature on GS-500 precision, size deviations from the allele averages were compared to the measured ambient temperature at the start of each injection (Figure 3).

In the case where ambient temperatures are approaching the desired setpoint of the oven, very little power is required to heat the oven some incremental amount.
In the case of a completely empty oven, when ambient temperatures equal that of the oven's setpoint, the oven will need zero power to maintain its temperature (all of the required energy is being supplied by the surrounding environment).

As the ambient temperature of the conductor is decreased, it has been found that there occurs a linear decrease in resistivity with temperature.
The conducting behavior of a material below its transition temperature is described on the basis of the "two-fluid" model of superconductivity: one "fluid" consists of electrons in a normal conduction process expected at the particular ambient temperature of the conductor; the other consists of high speed electrons whose passage along the conductor is apparently unimpeded.

But when food technologists speak of ambient foods, they’re using the term as shorthand for ambient temperature foods (which makes my friend’s job ambient temperature foods stock control manager, which really is a mouthful).
You can argue they’re using the word correctly, since they’re speaking of foods that can be stored at the temperature of their surroundings in the store, without needing to be chilled, such as canned foods, jars of coffee, fresh fruit or bags of sugar.

ESDU 93020 is ancillary to and is for use in conjunction with ESDU 88025, which provides a definitive method for deriving primary air-data parameters in hypersonic flight with excellent precision, provided an accurate value of static pressure is available.
It is not possible to evaluate the relationship between the sensed static pressure and the real ambient pressure when the air is calorically and thermally imperfect as it is behind the shock in hypersonic flight.
However, it also requires a knowledge of the ambient temperature and the lapse rate, either from meteorological balloons or satellite observation, although an accuracy of 4 or 5 K for ambient temperature will be satisfactory.
