Abstract
In this paper, investigate a two dimensional unsteady Magneto hydro dynamics (MHD) free convection flow of viscous incompressible and electrically conducting fluid flow past an vertical plate in the presence of Grashof Number, Modified Grashof Number, Prandtl Number, Schamidt Number as well as Dufour effects. The governing equations of the problem contain a system of non-linear partial differential equations; have been transformed into a set of coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations which is solved numerically by applying well known explicit finite difference method. The Finite-difference method is an enormously used technique to investigate of the general non linear partial differential equation. Partial differential equations occur in many branches of applied mathematics for example, in hydrodynamics, elasticity, quantum mechanics. Hence, the proposed study is to investigate the numerical results which are performed for various physical parameters such as velocity profiles, temperature distribution and concentration profiles within the boundary layer are separately discussed in graphically.
