Abstract: A critical study on the stability of a hot layer of micropolar fluid heated from below with free boundaries has been investigated. The analysis shows that the method by which the previous investigators (Datta and Sastry, and Pérez-García and Rubí) obtained the critical Rayleigh number is not justified and the final result obtained thereby is erroneous. The correct solution to the problem has been presented. Moreover, it is found that the possibility of having an overstable marginal state which was shown by one of the previous investigators (Pérez-García and Rubí) is not justified. The correct approach proves the validity of the principle of exchange of stabilities for this problem. The results show that the criteria of micropolar stability have some interesting features having no classical analogue.
