Abstract



Analytical solutions for heat and mass transfer by laminar flow of Newtonian, viscous, electrically conducting and heat generation/absorbing fluid on a continuously moving vertical permeable surface with buoyancy in the presence of a magnetic field and a first order chemical reaction are reported. The solutions for magnetic and velocity fields are obtained for various thermal grashof number, mass grashof number, Hartmann number, and magnetic buoyancy. The effect of various parameters on skin friction coefficient Cf were also examined and reported. Graphical illustration features prominently in this work.
