Abstract

This study investigates free convective flow between vertical porous plates. The energy and momentum equations which arise from the definitions of temperature and velocity are written in dimensionless forms. The resulting second order equations are solved to obtain expressions for the velocity, temperature, mass transfer skin friction, and rate of heat transfer.

Keywords: Convective flow, reacting fluid, vertical porous plates.
