An analysis was carried out to study the variable viscosity effect on flow in a viscous fluid over a porous wedge. The wall of the wedge is embedded in a uniform Darcian porous medium to allow for injection or suction. The governing equations are written into a dimensionless form by a similarity transformation. The transformed ordinary differential equation is solved analytically and the effect of parameters on it is shown graphically.

Keywords: Flow, wedge, viscosity
