The focus of this study is to carry out a numerical investigation of the convective plane stagnation point flow with convective boundary conditions. The system of coupled partial differential equations was first transformed into a system of coupled ordinary differential equations using the method of similarity transformation, which was then solved using the classical fourth order Runge-Kutta formula together with the shooting techniques. The effects of the thermo-physical parameters were then investigated. The Nusselt number is also determined numerically and compared with the case of flow over a flat plate, It is discovered that the plane stagnation point flow has higher Nusselt numbers due to the presence of the pressure gradient.
