## Abstract

Current work reports heat and mass transfer effects on unsteady free convection flow past a linearly accelerated isothermal inclined plate with variable temperature and mass diffusion with thermal radiation. The fluid is gray and non-scattering medium. When time t>0, the plate is accelerated with velocity u0 t, the plate temperature is raised linearly with respect to time and the mass is diffused from the plate linearly with time. The Mathematical equations represent the present flow problem are solved by Laplace transform method. The influences of significant involved parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration are tested. The rate of heat transfer in terms of Nusselt number and the rate of mass transfer in terms of Sherwood number have also been computed and their impacts for various parameters are discussed through the graphs. Fluid velocity is reduced by radiation parameter R, Prandtl number Pr and inclined angle parameter ϕ. Also the rate of change of heat transfer for water is higher than that of air.
