The transformation group theoretic approach is applied to perform an analysis of unsteady free convection flow over a vertical flat plate immersed in a power law fluid. The thermal boundary layer induced within a vertical semi-infinite layer of Boussinseq fluid. The system of governing partial differential equations with boundary conditions reduces to a system of ordinary differential equations with appropriate boundary conditions via two-parameter group theory. The obtained ordinary differential equations are solved numerically for velocity and temperature using the fourth order Runge-Kutta and shooting method. The effect of Prandtl number and viscosity index (n) on the thermal boundary-layer, velocity boundary-layer, local Nusselt number, and local skin-friction were studied. [DOI: 10.1115/1.4005750]
