In the present paper, the exact analysis of steady state fully developed natural convective Couette flow in a vertical parallel plate microchannel is performed. Exact solutions are derived for the dimensionless velocity, temperature, volume flow rate, vertical heat flux and Nusselt number. The effects of Grashof number, wall-ambient temperature difference ratio and Knudsen number on the velocity, volume flow rate and Nusselt number have been discussed through graphs. The study revealed that the fluid velocity and volume flow rate increases with increasing Grashof number whereas the Nusselt number decreases with increasing Grashof number.
