If a fly looses its wings, is it called a walk?

It doesn't matter what temperature the room is, it's always room temperature :P

I would think that if the temperature in a given room was freezing cold or burning hot, then the term "room temperature" would not apply.

Room Temperature and Pressure (RTP) is defined for the purposes of scientific experiments to be 25°C and 101.325kPa, so that puts paid to that scheme. :P

What's the point of going out? You'll only end up back home anyway!
"For any consistent, formal, computably enumerable theory that proves basic arithmetical truths, an arithmetical statement that is true but not provable in the theory can be constructed. That is, any effectively generated theory capable of expressing elementary arithmetic cannot be both consistent and complete." - Gödel

It wouldn't be "going out" otherwise.

No,it doesn't!

STP (Standard Temperature and Pressure) is defined as 0C and 1atm (101.325kPA). That's for the chemistry geeks.
SATP (Standard AMBIENT Temperature and Pressure (for us humans) is 25C and 1atm.

In addition, there's standard Civil aviation atmosphere, which is different (although I recall it's at 0 humidity).
Plus, another useful standard is the Army standard atmosphere, which is somewhat above sealevel, for artillery calculations.

Besides, if you're a true Englishman, you should state it as 70F and 14.69PSI ;-)

You know the speed of light, so what's the speed of dark? :shock: :shock:

Since the anti-photon lacks light, it is able to move faster than the photon, which has to carry the extra burden around with it.

I know what STP is. While you use SATP, I use RTP. In fact, according to Google, you're outnumbered by nearly 3:1. Not least, I'm sure, because the word "ambient" simply means "surrounding" -- and that has nothing whatsoever to do with the absolute values! Anyway, SATP, apparently, uses a pressure of exactly 100kPa, not 1 atm as RTP so they aren't even equivalent. :)

Besides, if you're a true Englishman, you should state it as 70F and 14.69PSI ;-)

Oddly enough, those units have been extremely uncommon in general usage for the previous fifty or so years, so I guess I would have to be 70 or so in order to have gained enough familiarity to work with them. I'm not. :wink:
