Abstract: The effect of suction/injection in the laminar free convection flow of a thermomicropolar fluid past a nonuniformly heated vertical flat plate has been considered. The conditions under which similarity exists have been examined. The resulting system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations has been solved numerically after transforming the infinite domain of boundary layer coordinate into a finite domain. The effects of variation of the boundary condition parameter and suction/injection parameter on the velocity, microrotation and temperature fields and the heat transfer coefficient have been studied raphically. The skin-friction parameter and the gradient of microrotation on the wall have been tabulated. It is found that there is significant increase in velocity, skin-friction and the heat transfer coefficient with the decreasing concentration of microelements.
