A boundary layer solution is presented to the steady free convection from a vertical plate with uniform surface heat flux conditions and immersed in a micropolar fluid. Numerical solutions for governing nonsimilar boundary layer equations are presented for a range of values of the material properties and Prandtl number of the fluid. An asymptotic solution is developed for large distances away from the leading edge.
