A theoretical analysis performed for investigating steady boundary layer flow of magnetohydrodynamic flow over cylinder with heat source/sink. Proposed mathematical model has a tendency to characterize the effect of magnetohydrodynamic flow over cylinder heat source/sink. The non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved using the Runge-Kutta method. The characteristics of velocity and temperature boundary layers for different physical parameters such as heat source parameter , Reynolds number , the Prandtl number , the magnetic field parameter and power law index parameter . Moreover, the local friction factor coefficients, Nusselt number are also estimated and discussed for aforesaid physical parameters. It is observed that heat transfer rate increases with in power law index parameter and magnetic field parameter while decrease in power law index parameter and Reynolds number.
