### 25 degrees C

So I know that most of the time these reactions will occur in a lab that is 25 degrees Celsius, but what would we do to compensate if it is not in 25 degrees? What would we need to change?

If the temperature at which the reaction occurs is not at 25 degrees C, the Ka (the acidity constant) changes. Temperature is one of the few things that change the Ka.

Ka is affected by temperature and therefore would change if it not at 25 degrees Celsius. If this is the case, I would assume the question would provide the new Ka for the specified temperature.
