Recent research confirms that slip of a fluid on the solid surface occurs at micrometer scale. Slip on solid surface may cause the change of interior material deformation which consequently leads to the change of velocity profile and stress field. This paper concerns the time periodic electroosmotic flow in a channel with slip boundary driven by an alternating electric field, which arises from the study of particle manipulation and separation such as flow pumping and mixing enhancement. Although exact solutions to various flow problems of electroosmotic flows under the no-slip condition have been obtained, exact solutions for problems under slip boundary conditions have seldom been addressed. In this paper, an exact solution is derived for the time periodic electroosmotic flow in two-dimensional straight channels under slip boundary conditions.
