Abstract
In this article, Laplace transform and new homotopy perturbation methods are adopted to study
the problem of forced convection over a horizontal flat plate analytically. The problem is a system
of nonlinear ordinary differential equations which arises in boundary layer flow. The solutions
approximated by the proposed method are shown to be precise as compared to the corresponding
results obtained by numerical method. A high accuracy of new method is evident.
