Abstract

The purpose of this research paper is an unsteady MHD two-dimensional free convection flow of a viscous, incompressible, radiating, chemically reacting, radiation absorbing Kuvshinshiki fluid through a porous medium past a semi-infinite vertical plate are investigated in presence of heat source. The non dimensional governing equations are solved by a regular perturbation law. The expressions for velocity, temperature and concentration fields are obtained. The effects of various physical parameters on the above flow quantities are studied through graphs. Finally, the values of the local skin-friction coefficient, rate of heat transfer and rate of mass transfer are also shown in tabular form.
