Abstracts

A numerical investigation is carried out for an unsteady MHD heat and mass transfer flow of a conducting and chemically reactive Newtonian fluid past a porous plate in rotating medium. The dimension less governing equations are solved numerically by using finite difference method. The effects of various physical parameters on flow quantities are studied with the help of graphs. The most important quantities related to physical applications such as skin friction coefficient, the rate of heat transfer in the form of Nusselt number and the rate of mass transfer in the form of Sherwood number are also studies through tables, for various effects of physical parameters.
