We consider the two-dimensional problem of steady natural convection in a narrow (Micro size) Horizontal Cylindrical annulus filled with viscous fluid and periodic volumetric heat flux. The solution is expanded in powers of a single combined similarity parameter, which is the product of the Gap ratio to the power of four, and Rayleigh number and the series extended by means of symbolic calculation up to 16 terms. Analysis of these expansions allows the exact computation for arbitrarily accuracy up to 50000 figures. Although the range of the radius of convergence is almost zero but Pade approximation lead our result to be good even for much higher value of the similarity parameter.
