MHD flow past an exponentially accelerated infinite vertical plate with variable temperature is studied here. The dimensionless governing equations are solved using Laplace-transform technique. The velocity and temperature are studied for different physical parameters like magnetic field parameter,  thermal Grashof number, time and an accelerating parameter a. It is observed that for an increase in magnetic field parameter M, there is a fall in the velocity.


Key words: exponential, accelerated vertical plate, magnetic field
