      Hi

      The process of cooling by blowing over something is called Forced convection. The rate of heat transfer can be computed using the Newton's law of cooling - which states that the convection heat transfer rate, q", is directly proportional to the difference between the surface and fluid temperatures. In mathematical terms,

      q" = h(T_s - T_inf)

      where: 

      q" - convection heat flux (W/m^2),

      h - proportionality constant referred to as the heat transfer coefficient (W/(m^2.K)),

      T_s - surface temperature, and

      T_inf - bulk fluid temperature.
