The steady, two dimensional flow of incompressible micropolar fluid over a stretching sheet with Newtonian heating in the presence of heat generation and radiation. Using the similarity transformations, the governing equations have been transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations. These differential equations are highly nonlinear which cannot be solved analytically. Therefore, fifth-order RungeKutta integration scheme has been used for solving it. Numerical results are obtained for the skin-friction coefficient, the couple wall stress and the local Nusselt number as well as the velocity, microrotation and temperature profiles for different values of the governing parameters, namely, material parameter, heat generation parameter and radiation parameter.
