The boundary layer equations for flow of non-Newtonian Powell-Eyring fluids past a rectangular wedge are solved exactly over a wide range of the governing parameters. The accuracy of an approximate solution of the same flow problem, based on the integral momentum theorem, is found to be sufficient for rapid engineering calculations.
