A mathematical model is presented for a two-dimensional, steady, incompressible electrically conducting, laminar free convection boundary layer flow of a continuously moving vertical porous plate in a chemically reactive medium in the presence of a transverse magnetic field. The basic equations governing the flow are in the form of partial differential equations and have been reduced to a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations by applying suitable similarity transformations. The problem is tackled numerically using shooting techniques with the fourth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. Pertinent results with respect to embedded parameters are displayed graphically for the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles and were discussed quantitatively.
Key words: Free convection, moving porous plate, magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD), Chemical reaction, heat and mass transfer.
