ABSTRACT

MHD flow past an exponentially accelerated infinite vertical plate with variable temperature and uniform mass diffusion is studied here. The dimensionless governing equations are solved using Laplace-transform technique. The velocity, temperature and concentration are studied for different physical parameters like magnetic field parameter, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number, time and an accelerating parameter a. It is observed that for an increase in magnetic field parameter M, there is a fall in the velocity.

Key words: exponential, accelerated vertical plate, magnetic field
