Abstract

The natural convection heat and mass transfer along a vertical plate embedded in non-Newtonian Power-law fluid saturated porous medium in the presence of first order chemical reaction and radiation is studied. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The resulting equations are solved numerically using Shooting method. The effect of radiation parameters and chemical reaction parameter and power law index on non-dimensional velocity, temperature and concentration fields are discussed. The variation of different parameters on heat and mass transfer rates is presented in tabular form.
