ABSTRACT

        An exact analysis of rotation effects on unsteady flow of an incompressible fluid past a uniformly accelerated infinite vertical plate with variable temperature and mass diffusion, in the presence of chemical reaction of first order.  The plate temperature is raised linearly with time and the concentration level near the plate is also raised to The dimensionless governing equations are solved using Laplace-transformtechnique. The velocity profiles, temperature and concentration are studied for different physical parameters like chemical reaction parameter, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number, Schmidt number, Prandtl number and time. It is observed that the velocity increases with increasing values of thermal Grashof number or mass Grashof number. It is also observed that the velocity increases with decreasing magnetic field parameter or rotation parameter Ω.
