In this work, we are studying the effect of nanoparticle from cu, AL2O3 and TIO2 on micropolar fluid flow and heat transfer. The governing fundamental equations are approximated by a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations and are solved numerically by using the Runge Kutta Gill and shooting methods. The coupled non-linear (PDE) representing momentum, angular momentum and non-homogeneous heat equation are solved and reduced into a set of non-linear (ODE). In these equations, there are two parameters. We can change its values, nano particle and parameter radiation and their effect on heat profile.
