The flow, heat and mass transfer of water-based nanofluid are examined between two horizontal parallel plates in a rotating system. The effects of Brownian motion, thermophoresis, viscosity and Hall current parameters are considered. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to ordinary differential equations that are then solved numerically using the Runge–Kutta–Fehlberg method. Validation of numerical solution is achieved with an exact solution of primary velocity and found to be in good agreement. Results show that both surfaces experience opposite behavior regarding skin friction, Nusselt and Sherwood numbers in both primary and secondary flows. These physical quantities depend upon dimensionless parameters and numbers.
