In this paper, we present modified homotopy perturbation method coupled by Laplace transform to solve non-linear problems. As case study modified homotopy perturbation method coupled by Laplace transform is employed in order to obtain an approximate solution for the non-linear differential equation that describes the steady-state of a heat 1-D flow. The comparison between approximate and exact solutions shows the practical potentiality of the method.
