Abstract

In this paper, we consider the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer flow and heat transfer of power law fluid over a flat plate with slip boundary conditions. We use a similarity transformation to convert the governing nonlinear partial differential equations into a system of ordinary differen- tial equations and solve the resulting system numerically using MATLAB's boundary value solver, bvp4c, and the shooting method. We present velocity and temperature profiles within the bound- ary layer and demonstrate the effect of changing the magnetic parameter, Prandtl number, and slip parameters.
