Abstract

An exact solution of the Stokes' problem to magnetohydrocynamic for the flow past an infinite vertical oscillating plate, is presented. The induced magnetic field is assumed negligible and the effects of free convection and mass transfer is taken into account. It's observed that the skin friction decreases with increasing Sc (Schmidt number), but increases with increasing Gr (Grashof number) or Gm (Modified Grashof number).
