This paper presents analytic-numeric solution Bessel differential equations of order zero using Exponentially Fitted Collocation Approximation Method (EFCAM). This technique was employed to obtain the analytic-numerical solutions of Bessel equations. The method introduces a significant improvement in solving differential equations on mathematical physics. The numerical results obtained by EFCAM are in good agreement with exact solution and available results in literature with little error and showed effectiveness of the proposed method.
