Abstract: Laminar free convection boundary layer flow of a thermomicropolar fluid past a non-isothermal vertical flat plate has been studied in detail. It has been established that the flow problem has similarity solutions when the variation in fhe kvnperature of the plate is a linear function of the distance from the leading edge measured along the plate. The resulting system of the nonlinear ordinary differential equations has been solved numerically by “Shooting Method” for various values of the material parameters. The effects of these parameters has been studied on the velocity and microrotation fields graphically. Also “Tables” have been given for the values of temperature, skin-friction parameter, microrotation gradient on the wall and Nusselt number. Two types of boundary conditions are prescribed for the microrotation on the wall.
