Abstract: Micropolar fluid behavior on convective boundary layer flow with constant pressure, permeability, heat and mass transfer have been studied analytically. Perturbation technique is used as the main tool for the analytic approach. Some non-dimensional quantities are used to transform the governing equations. The non-dimensional equations for the momentum, angular momentum, temperature and concentration are solved analytically to obtain approximate solutions by the above mentioned technique. With the aid of graphs, the effects of various important parameters associated with the velocity, micro rotation, temperature and concentration fields within the boundary layer were examined and discussed. Further, the skin friction coefficients at the plate was computed and the influence of physical parameters of engineering interest were discussed.
