The free convective micropolar fluid over a shrinking sheet in presence of heat source/sink has been studied in this paper.

The method of solution involves similarity transformation. The coupled non-linear partial differential equations representing momentum and concentration and non homogeneous heat equation are reduced into set of non-linear ordinary differential equations.

The transformed equations are solved by applying Runge-Kutta method followed by shooting technique. The effect of pertinent parameters characterizing the flow has been presentedthroughthegraphsandthendiscussed.

Present study showed an excellent agreement with published literature
