Power law metachronal wave motion, responsible for the cilia transport is investigated in this paper using numerical tools. The dynamical analysis is made in channel and in tube to demonstrate the quantitative effect of the geometry. Similarity transformations are employed to convert the governing partial differential equations into a set of coupled ordinary differential equations. A swift and accurate collocation algorithm is applied to the boundary value problem (BVP) of coupled ordinary differential equations. A nondimensional graphical analysis of the waving amplitude is reported by varying the flow consistency and flow behavior indices.
