An exact solution to the problem of lfow past an impulsively started infinite vertical plate in the presence of uniform heat and mass flux at the plate is presented by the Laplace-transform technique. The velocity, the temperature and the concentration profiles are shown graphically. The rate of heat transfer, the skin-friction, and the Sherwood number are also shown on graphs. The effect of different parameters like Grashof number, mass Grashof number, Prandtl number, and Schmidt number are discussed.
