Abstract: A mathematical model is presented for a two-dimensional, steady, viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting and laminar free convection boundary layer flow with radiation from a flat plate in a chemically reactive medium in the presence of a transverse magnetic field. The basic equations governing the flow are in the form of partial differential equations and have been reduced to a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations by applying suitable similarity transformations. The problem is tackled numerically using shooting techniques with the fourth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. Pertinent results with respect to embedded parameters are displayed graphically for the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles and discussed quantitatively.
