  Room temperature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Room temperature, in laboratory reports, is taken to be roughly 21–23 degrees Celsius (69-73 degrees Fahrenheit), or 294–296 kelvins.
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.
And, of course, the ambient temperature of a room is room temperature.

 Encyclopedia: Room temperature
The kelvin (symbol: K) is the SI unit of temperature, and is one of the seven SI base units.
Temperature is the physical property of a system which underlies the common notions of hot and cold; the material with the higher temperature is said to be hotter.

 Room temperature superconductor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A room temperature superconductor is material yet to be discovered which would be capable of exhibiting superconducting properties at temperatures above 0°C (273.15 K).
This is of course not strictly speaking "room temperature" (20–25°C), however it can be reached very cheaply even for large machines (for example, meat closets reach this temperature).
Since the discovery of high-temperature superconductors, several materials have been claimed as being room-temperature superconductors.

 Room temperature
In laboratory science reports, room temperature is taken to be roughly 21-23 degrees Celsius, 70-74 degrees Fahrenheit, or 294-296 kelvin.
The phenomena that researchers have chosen to study at room temperature may occur in nature in the range of 21-23°C ("ATP consumption in resting cockroaches"), or they may not ("biochemistry of warm-blooded animals").
Experimentalists have an advantage in anticipating aspects of a room-temperature experiment, because the temperature is close to 25°C (77°F, 298K), at which many of the material properties and physical constants in standards tables have been measured (more at standard state).

 Metric System Temperature (kelvin and degree Celsius)
The degree Celsius (°C) scale was devised by dividing the range of temperature between the freezing and boiling temperatures of pure water at standard atmospheric conditions (sea level pressure) into 100 equal parts.
Temperatures on this scale were at one time known as degrees centigrade, however it is no longer correct to use that terminology.
Temperatures on this scale are called kelvins, NOT degrees kelvin, kelvin is not capitalized, and the symbol (capital K) stands alone with no degree symbol.

Room air-conditioners are often installed far from the part of a room or office which you may occupy.
In a home setting, a room air conditioner might be located in a window far from an occupied portion of the room, thereby producing an aggravating difficulty in maintaining a stable comfort level in the occupant's immediate room space.

Room temperature is usually considered to be about 72° F, or 22° C.
If the room air temperature were the same temperature as our bodies (98.6° F, or 37° C), we wouldn't be able to radiate away this heat.

 The quest for Superconduction at room temperature - Are diamonds the answer?
Although other materials have since been found, which are also superconducting, the maximum temperature at which this effect could be generated was, for many years, only 23 K. In 1986 excitement ensued when certain copper-oxide ceramics were discovered which superconduct at higher temperatures [2].
The temperature quickly rocketed from 30 to 150 K, where it has again reached a ceiling; still well below the 300 K required for room temperature operation.
However, my present studies, and recent experimental results, have now produced compelling evidence that it is possible to generate a superconducting phase, at room, and higher temperatures, consisting entirely of electrons.

Room temperature liquid sodium can occur but only under pressures of a million atmospheres.
What happens is this: With zero pressure applied, sodium melts at a temperature of 371 K. As pressure is added, the melting temperature goes up too, up to 1000 K at a pressure of 30 giga-pascals (30 GPa), or about 300,000 atm.
According to Carnegie researcher Eugene Gregoryanz (e.gregoryanz@gl.ciw.edu), at a pressure of a million atmospheres his sodium sample melts at room temperature.

Answer: Using eggs at room temperature, especially in baking recipes such as meringues or Italian butter cream, is preferable for several reasons.
At room temperature, they will beat faster and result in a greater increase in volume, giving a finer texture.
The most ideal way to bring eggs to room temperature is to do it ahead of time: Remove the eggs from the refrigerator and let them sit, covered at room temperature for no longer than 30 minutes.

The room temperature boiler is a senior mechanical engineering project currently being designed by Nader Al-Khatib and myself.
The room temperature boiler reduces the pressure in the chamber until the liquid can boil without adding any heat.
For this boiling to begin we need a temperature difference between the wall and the saturation temperature of approximately 5 degrees C. To maintain the boiling effect for the specified time of 15 seconds, a sufficient amount of heat must be allowed to transfer into the base of the chamber.

 Materials Chemistry - Superconductors
At ordinary temperatures, metals have some resistance to the flow of electrons, due to the vibration of the atoms which scatter the electrons.
As the temperature is lowered, the atoms vibrate less and the resistance declines smoothly, until the material’s critical temperature, Tc, is reached.
The voltage drop, V=IR, along the pellet due to the pellet’s resistance, R, at room temperature is measured with the volt meter.

 Look in right places for room-temperature superconductors, says Geballe
For widespread use, such as conducting electricity in homes or offices, superconductors will need to work at room temperature - about 68 degrees F. Geballe believes a technological breakthrough is possible that would bring superconductors out of laboratories and into society's mainstream.
Before 1985, scientists wanted to produce materials that could superconduct at the temperature of liquid nitrogen (minus 321 F) which was cheaper than liquid helium and more practical for commercial applications.
To convert to degrees Kelvin, a unit used by superconductor scientists because it is the only scale in which temperature is directly proportional to kinetic energy, add 273 to the Celsius temperature.

 Boiling at Room Temperature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Water can boil at room temperature if the pressure is reduced enough (a vacuum means zero pressure).
The boiling point at the top of a mountain is lower than it is at the bottom, because the air pressure is lower at the top.
The reason is that at room temperature, water molecules are constantly going into the air as vapor and moving back into the liquid water.

The Room Temperature Ionic Liquid Community Database is maintained at Queen's University of Northern Ireland, URL: http://www.ch.qub.ac.uk/resources/ionic/ionic.html
Room temperature ionic liquids are liquids that are composed entirely of ions and in this sense alone resemble the ionic melts which may be produced by heating normal metallic salts such as sodium chloride to high temperature (e.g., NaCl to over 800oC).
They are liquid at room temperature, but in fact have an enormous liquid range of 300oC which is larger than that of water and offers the potential for considerable kinetic control of extractive processes.

A means of conducting electricity without any losses whatsoever at temperatures hundreds of degrees higher than what is required of today's "warm superconductors" - the copper perovskites.
It is well known that copper-based perovskite oxides rightly enjoy consensus as high-temperature superconductors on the basis of two signatures: Meissner effect and zero resistance.
