The thermal boundary layer problem was reconsidered with a view to investigating the effects of an externally applied magnetic field on the velocity and thermal boundary layers as well as on the wall parameters. A mathematical formulation of the thermometer problem is given in terms of 2D steady state boundary layer equations with appropriate boundary conditions. The governing partial differential equations have been reduced to a system of ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The resulting nonlinear boundary value problem has been solved numerically.
