Room temperature denotes a certain temperature to which humans are accustomed. In the United Kingdom, room temperature is traditionally 18°C but is now regarded as being too cool, possibly due to the widespread use of central heating. For scientific calculations, room temperature is usually taken to be either 20 or 25 degrees Celsius (293 or 298 Kelvin (K), 68 or 77 degrees Fahrenheit. We would feel completely comfortable when naked only if the room temperature were close to body temperature, 37° C, and we weren't moving around (generating more heat).
Room temperature refers to the temperature of what is considered to be a 'normal' room. Physicists usually consider room temperature to be between 21°C and 23°C (294 to 296 Kelvin or 70°F to 74°F), with the implicit assumption that the room's air pressure is close to standard pressure.
There's no scientific temperature given for room temperature, it's just the temperature of the room you are in and is used to describe something such as water to set a starting point. A comfortable room temperature will usually be around 30 degrees Celsius.
