Abstract

The study investigates the interaction of free convective flow with thermal radiation and variable pressure on natural convective heat and mass transfer fluid flow in porous medium. Solutions for time dependent energy, concentration and momentum equations were obtained by the perturbation series method after transforming into ordinary differential equations. The effect of various flow parameters such as: suction/injection ( δ) radiation (R ) magnetic field (M ) heat source (S ) chemical reaction ( Rc) on the skin friction, rate of heat transfer, velocity, temperature, and concentration profile influencing the physical situation were discussed with the aid of line graphs.
