I. INTRODUCTION

Consider a two dimensional unsteady flow of a laminar, incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting and heat generation fluid past a semi-infinite vertical moving plate embedded in a uniform porous medium and subjected to a uniform transverse magnetic field in the presence of a pressure gradient has been considered with free convection, thermal diffusion and thermal radiation effects taking in to an account. According to the coordinate system the x* -axis is taken along the porous plate in the upward direction and y-* axis normal to it. The fluid is assumed to be gray, absorbing–emitting but not scattering medium. Now to solve the momentum, energy and concentration equations usual similarity transformations are introduced. We get a set of ordinary differential equation to obtain the solutions of the problem. The ordinary differential equations are solved by using perturbation technique. The expressions for velocity field, temperature distribution, concentration field, skin friction, Nusselt number (Nu) and Sherwood number (Sh) have been obtained. The results are discussed in detailed with the help of graphs to analyze the effect of different flow parameters. .

Several workers have studied the problem of free convection flow with mass transfer. Gupta et al [1] have studied heat and mass transfer on a stretching sheet with suction or blowing. Free convection and mass transfer flow through porous medium bounded by an infinite vertical limiting Surface with constant suction have been analyzed by Raptis et al [2]. The free convection and mass transfer flow through a porous medium past an infinite vertical porous plate with time dependent temperature and concentration medium have been discussed by Sattar [3]. Das et al [4] have studied numerical solution of mass transfer effects on unsteady flow past an accelerated vertical porous plate with suction. Viscous dissipation in external natural convection flows have been discussed by Gebhart B. [5]. Viscous dissipation effects on unsteady free convection and mass transfer flow past an accelerated vertical porous plate with suction have been discussed by Bala Siddulu Malga, Naikoti Kishan. [6].

Chandran et al. [7] have discussed the unsteady free convection flow with heat flux and accelerated motion. Soundalgekar et al. [8] have analyzed the transient free convection flow of a viscous dissipative fluid past a semi-infinite vertical plate.

Free-convection flow with thermal radiation and mass transfer past a moving vertical porous plate have analyzed by Makinde, O. D [9]. Unsteady MHD free convection flow of a compressible fluid past a moving vertical plate in the presence of radioactive heat transfer have been discussed by Mbeledogu, I. U, Amakiri, A.R.C and Ogulu, A, [10]. Numerical Study on MHD free convection and mass transfer flow past a vertical flat plate has been discussed by S. F. Ahmmed [11]

Recently, Das et al [4] have studied numerical solution of mass transfer effects on unsteady flow past an accelerated vertical porous plate with suction. The present study is extension of work; here we considered the effects of viscous dissipation on unsteady free convection and mass transfer boundary layer flow past an accelerated infinite vertical porous flat plate .In their paper they converted the governing equations which are in partial differential equations to ordinary differential equations by introducing similarity variables and then solved the governing equations by finite difference scheme. In the study we have solved the governing partial differential equations only by using the perturbation technique. The effects of the flow parameters on the velocity, temperature and the concentration distribution of the flow field have been studied with the help of graphs. This type of problem has some significant relevance to geophysical and astrophysical studies.

In our present work, we have studied about analytical study on unsteady free convection and mass transfer flow past an accelerated vertical porous plate. The governing equations for the unsteady case are also studied. Then these governing equations are transformed into dimensionless momentum, energy and concentration equations.. The obtained results of this problem have been discussed for the different values of well-known parameters with different time steps. The Wolfram mathematica students for 7 is used to draw graph of the flow.

I. The governing equation

Introducing a Cartesian co-ordinate system x* is chosen along the plate in the direction of flow and y*- axis normal to it. The fluid is assumed to be gray, absorbing–emitting but not scattering medium. Now to solve the momentum, energy and concentration equations usual similarity transformations are introduced.

Within the frame work of delete such assumptions the equations of continuity, momentum, energy and concentration are follows,
