The boundary layer flow of viscous incompressible fluid over a stretching cylinder has been considered to study flow field and temperature field. Due to non-linearity, a numerical approach called Keller-box technique has been used to compute the values of velocity function f and temperature field at different points of dynamic region. The expressions for skin friction and Nusselt number have also been obtained. The dependence of velocity profile and temperature profile on the dimensionless parameter of practical interest has been analyzed in detail by graphs. The dependence of Skin friction and Nusselt number has been seen through tables.
