The significance of mathematical modelling of the slider bearings phenomenon cannot be over emphasized. The differential equation of the slider bearings does not have a closed-form solution. To successfully analyse this proposed problem, we propose a technique of a numerical sensitivity analysis by carefully designing three sub-programs of Matlab implementation. In this sophisticated analysis, we have found the model parameter h and μ to be equally sensitive. However, the model parameter h has higher sensitivity values than the model parameter μ. In this context,appropriate suggestions leading to the selection of
the best fit parameter which in this case is μ have been made. The results which we have
obtained in this study have not been seen elsewhere; they are presented here and discussed.
