Momentum equations for a non-Newtonian, constant density fluid are obtained in a non-orthogonal, accelerated, curved coordinates' system, by generalizing the equations for Newtonian fluids. The resulting equations are considered to be useful for solving the three-dimensional boundary layer equations of non-Newtonian fluids on curved surfaces.
