Abstract

The present paper considers the steady lammiar free convection boundary layer flow over an a sphere with a surface heat flux placed in a micropolar fluid. The governing boundary layer equations are first transformed into a non-dimensional form and the resulting nonlinear system of partial differential equations are then solved numerically using the Keller-box method. Numerical results presented include the local wall temperature distribution and the local skin friction coefficient for a wide range of material parameter K. The Prandtl number is taken to be 0.7 and 7, respectively.
