In this article, a new powerful analytical method, the Tamimi-Ansari method (TAM), has been introduced to solve some nonlinear problems that have been used in physics. This method does not require any hypothesis to counter with the nonlinear term. These results are compared with the exact solution and two other analytical methods. A few examples have been presented to show that this method is effective and reliable.
