    In chemistry it is referred to as standard temperature and pressure.

    That is one atmosphere at 27C.

    Because chemical reactions ( and biological ones) are affected by these factors, as you increase temeprature and pressure reaction rates increase so saying a reaction takes 'x seconds' only makes sense if you qualify it with a statement like 'at standard temperature and pressure' or something similar.

    If you read 'Boyles Law', 'Rates of Reaction' and 'STP (Standard Temperature and Pressure)' on wikipedia you'll be a good way to understanding.

    Controlling these conditions is central to performing a succesful experiment- you control everythng apart from the things you test (called your variables)

    Hope this helps.
