The Daftardar-Jafari technique is a powerful solution method for obtaining approximate and exact solutions of some nonlinear partial differential and integral equations. In this paper, the Daftardar-Jafari method is used to establish approximate solution of the conformable K (m, p,1) equation. This equation has been widely used in the applied sciences and engineering. The conformable derivative (CD) was introduced and explored with Khalil et al. We present the figures and tables to compare between the approximate solutions. The approximate results show that the Daftardar-Jafari method is a very efficient and most reliable approach to handle conformable partial differential and integral equations.

Keywords: The Daftardar-Jafari method, CFD, Conformable K (m, p,1) equation
