  • A chemical reaction effect on an unsteady magnetohydrodynamic flow past a semi-infinite vertical porous plate with viscous dissipation was analyzed.The governing equations of motion,energy and species were transformed into ordinary differential equations using time dependent similarity parameter.The resultant ordinary differential equations were then solved numerically by a finite element method.The effects of the various parameters on the velocity,temperature and concentration profiles were presented graphically and values of skin-friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number for various values of physical parameters were presented.
