The numerous applications of Maxwell Nanofluid Stagnation Point Flow, such as those in production industries, the processing of polymers, compression, power generation, lubrication systems, food manufacturing and air conditioning, among other applications, require further research into the effects of various parameters on flow phenomena. In this paper, a study has been carried out for the heat and mass transfer of Maxwell nanofluid flow over the heated stretching sheet. A mathematical model with constitutive expressions is constructed in partial differential equations (PDEs) through obligatory basic conservation laws. A series of transformations are then used to take the system into an ordinary differential equation (ODE). The boundary conditions (BCs) are also treated similarly for transforming into first-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Then these ODEs are computed by using the Shooting Method. The effect of factors on the skin friction coefficient, the local Nusselt number, and the local Sherwood number are explored, and the results are displayed graphically. The obtained results demonstrate that by increasing the values of the Maxwell and slip velocity parameters, velocity deescalates. For investigators tasked with addressing unresolved difficulties in the realm of enclosures used in industry and engineering, we thought this work would serve as a guide.
