The temperature and the chemical species\r\nconcentration of the surface and the velocity of the external flow are\r\nassumed to vary linearly with the distance from the vertical surface.\r\nThe governing differential equations are modeled and transformed\r\ninto systems of ordinary differential equations, which are then solved\r\nnumerically by a shooting method. The effects of various parameters\r\non the heat and mass transfer characteristics are discussed. Graphical\r\nresults are presented for the velocity, temperature, and concentration\r\nprofiles whilst the skin-friction coefficient and the rate of heat and\r\nmass transfers near the surface are presented in tables and discussed.\r\nThe results revealed that increasing the strength of the magnetic field\r\nincreases the skin-friction coefficient and the rate of heat and mass\r\ntransfers toward the surface. The velocity profiles are increased\r\ntowards the surface due to the presence of the Lorenz force, which\r\nattracts the fluid particles near the surface. The rate of chemical\r\nreaction is seen to decrease the concentration boundary layer near the\r\nsurface due to the destructive chemical reaction occurring near the\r\nsurface.","references":null,"publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 106, 2015"}
