Accidental

any sharp , flat , or natural that is not given in the Key signature. An Accidental in front of a Note applies as often as the Note is repeated at that particular octave during the remainder of the Bar it is in. In the Bar that comes after Accidental sharps or flats is usual to find 'warning' to contradict the accidentals in the previous Bar.
