The conjugate mixed convection–conduction heat transfer of a non-Newtonian power-law fluid on a vertical heated plate which is moving in an ambient fluid has been studied. The system of partial differential equations governing the flow and heat has been solved by using an implicit finite-difference method. The surface heat transfer is found to depend on the non-Newtonian parameter, buoyancy force, generalized Prandtl number, Peclet number and material parameter and it increases with these parameters except for the material parameter where it decreases. The Nusselt number and the wall temperature decrease with increasing distance along the plate. The skin friction coefficient increases with the buoyancy parameter. It also increases with the non-Newtonian parameter near the slot, but decreases away from the slot.
