Newton's law of cooling

Newton's law of cooling

[′nüt·ənz ′lȯ əv ′kül·iŋ]
(thermodynamics)
The law that the rate of heat flow out of an object by both natural convection and radiation is proportional to the temperature difference between the object and its environment, and to the surface area of the object.

For practical applications, we can use Newton's Law of Cooling (KREITH, 2003), Equation 1.
This process is called convective mass transfer and is described by an equation similar to Newton's Law of Cooling, (CREMASCO, 2002), Equation 2.
More information follows and you can see that basically this is about Newton's law of cooling.
