A modification of the hypersonic similar laminar boundary layer problem to include first order slip boundary conditions. Their inclusion results in no change in the energy transfer to the wall from the no-slip values, implying that slip effects alone are not adequate to explain the appearance of the heat transfer "plateaus" observed near the leading edge of a sharp flat plate in hypersonic flow. In addition, it is shown how the inclusion of slip boundary condition as the only higher order effect results in complete disagreement with observed pressure measurements for the cold wall case.
