Similarity solution of the laminar boundary layer equations corresponding to an unsteady stretching surface have been studied. The governing time-dependent boundary layer are transformed to ordinary differential equations containg Prandtl number and unsteadiness parameter. The effect of various govern-ing parameters such as Prandtl number and unsteadiness param-eter which determine the velocity and temperature profiles and heat transfer coefficient are studied.
