### EVALUATION OF ELECTRO-OSMOTIC FLOW IN A NANOCHANNEL VIA SEMI-ANALYTICAL METHOD

**ABSTRACT**

In this paper, equations due to anion and cation distributions, electrical potential and shear stress profiles in a nanochannel are formed for 1-D electro-osmotic flow, and solved by homotopy perturbation method. Results are compared with numerical solutions.
