Abstract: Using similarity transformations, the boundary layer equations, governing the flow of two-dimensional jet of electrically conducting non-Newtonian power law fluids in the presence of transverse magnetic field, are reduced to ordinary non-linear differential equation with conditions prescribed at two boundaries. Then, one-parameter group transformations are introduced to transform the two-point boundary value problem to initial value problem and finally the initial value problem is solved numerically on computer. Physical quantities of interest, for different values of flow index of power law model and magnetic parameter are tabulated numerically and the velocity distribution is shown graphically. It is found that the fluid flow index and magnetic field have significant effect on the flow.
