ABSTRACT:

In this paper, we investigated the unsteady free convective flow of an incompressible viscous electrically conducting fluid through a porous medium under the action of an inclined magnetic field between two heated vertical plates by keeping one plate is adiabatic. The governing equations of velocity and temperature fields with appropriate boundary conditions are solved by using perturbation technique. The effects of various physical parameters on the velocity and temperature fields are discussed in detail with the help of graphs.
