%X The heat transfer for a non-Newtonian power-law fluid over a moving surface is investigated by applying a uniform suction/injection velocity proﬁle. The ﬂow is inﬂuenced by internal heat generation/absorption. The energy equation is solved at constant surface temperature condition. The Merk-Chao series is applied to obtain a set of ODEs instead of a complicated PDE. The converted ordinary differential equations are solved numerically, adopting the fourth order Runge–Kutta method coupled with the shooting technique. The effects of the fluid type, suction/injection and heat source/sink parameters on heat-transfer are discussed. It is observed that thermal boundary layers for pseudo plastic fluids are thicker than that of the dilatants. There exists a direct relation between dimensionless temperature and the injection parameter or the heat generation parameter rise. Injection of a ﬂuid to the surface generates more flow penetration into the fluid, which causes an increase in the thermal boundary layer and the temperature.
