          A finite element technique is implemented for the free convection effects on MHD stokes problem. The numerical values for velocity and temperature under various physical situations are obtained and have been analyzed graphically. The numerical results are compared with analytical solution and established the validity of finite element technique (Ritz method).

Key words: specific heat, Grashof number, velocity, kinematic Viscosity, Finite element method.
