Abstract


We study on MHD Effects on Free Convective Flow of a Fluid through a Porous Medium in chemical reaction and thermal radiation an analysis is presented to study the MHD free convection with thermal radiation and mass transfer of fluid through a porous medium occupy a semi –infinite region of the space bounded by an infite vertical porous plate with constant suction velocity in the presence of chemical reaction, internal heat source ,viscous and darcy’s. The highly nonlinear coupled differential equations governing the boundary layer flow, heat, and mass transfer are solved by using a two-term perturbation method with Eckert number E as a perturbation parameter. The results are obtained for velocity, angular velocity, temperature, concentration, Nusselt number, and Sherwood number. The effect of various material parameters on flow, heat, and mass transfer variables is discussed and illustrated graphically.
