    what is different ambient temperature and room temperature?
    It depends on the context. If you are researching in the Antarctic then the ambient temperature will be rather cooler than Room Temp.

    In general though you can take them as meaning the same thing.

    Room temperature is given as 298K, ambient temperature is whatever the temperature actually is.

    for example, the ambient temperature in my lab is 21C, which is below standard room temperature.

    Knowing if your ambient temp is the same as room temp is important (expecially this time of year) as it will throw off reactions. I've had ambients of 15C before and had to do "room temp" reactions in a heated water bath.
