In this paper, we consider the nonlinear boundary value problem (BVP) for the electrohydrodynamic flow of a fluid in an ion drag configuration in a circular cylindrical conduit. We present analytical solutions based on the homotopy analysis method (HAM) for various values of the relevant parameters and discuss the convergence of these solutions. We also compare our results with numerical solutions. The results provide another example of a highly nonlinear problem in which HAM is the only known analytical method that yields convergent solutions for all values of the relevant parameters.
