ABSTRACT

The problem of a free convective MHD mass transfer flow past a semi-infinite vertical porous plate in the presence of a heat-absorbing sink and homogeneous chemical reaction is studied. A magnetic field of uniform intensity is assumed to be applied normal to the plate. The differential equations governing the flow are solved analytically by adopting an asymptotic series expansion for two cases: (i) small suction and (ii) large suction. The effects of different physical parameters on the flow and transport characteristics are given. One of the results of the present work for a special case has been compared to some already published work, and it is seen that both results are in excellent agreement.
