Abstract

An analytical study is performed to examine the mass-transfer characteristics on the free-convection flow of an incompressible viscous fluid past an exponentially accelerated infinite vertical plate under the action of constant heat flux. The effects of various parameters occurring into the problem, is extensively discussed.
