The present investigation addresses the effect of Newtonian heating in the laminar flow of power law nanofluid. The flow is induced by a stretching surface. The nonlinear analysis comprising flow and energy equations is computed. The problems are solved for the series solutions of velocity and temperature. Skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are computed. A parametric study is performed for the influential parameters on the velocity and temperature. Physical interpretation of the derived solutions is presented.
