The problem of nonlinear ion-acoustic waves equation in a magnetized plasma, known as Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation, is investigated by using symmetry analysis. The carryover of the symmetry analysis has led to certain similarity reductions of this equation. Furthermore, exact solutions of similarity reductions are obtained by modified Exp-Function method with computational symbolic. Some figures are obtained to show the properties of the solutions.
