This article provided to study the trend of heat transfer of two dimensional laminar force convective flow of viscous fluid over a flat plate. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations have been reduced to systems of nonlinear ordinary differential equations by employing the Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM). The transformed equations are solved numerically by using the software MAPLE. A comparative study of the numerical results with the results from an exact solution for the dimensionless similarity variables at the flat plate is also performed. In Pr=1, the ADM has a high accuracy than NM. The results are comparing between the numerical method and ADM, both of solution shows excellent agreement.

Keywords :Forced convection, Boundary layer, ADM, Heat transfer.
