# Abstract

In the present paper, the temperature distribution in the flow of a viscous incompressible fluid caused by stretching sheet with uniform heat flux has been analyzed. A new kind of technique which is called the variational Homotopy perturbation method has been employed for finding the solutions. The solutions for velocity and temperature distribution are attained by this method. The series solutions are obtained for the non linear equations caused by temperature field over a stretching sheet and the results are compared with the exact solutions, the accuracy is studied by this variational Homotopy perturbation method.
