Abstract: The objective of this paper is to study the effects of heat and mass transfer on unsteady hydromagnetic free convective flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid past an infinite vertical porous plate in presence of constant suction. The fundamental governing equations of the flow field are solved using finite element method and the numerical solutions are obtained for velocity, temperature, concentration distributions. The effects of different physical flow parameters on these respective flow fields are discussed through graphs and results are physically interpreted. The problem has some relevance in the geophysical and astrophysical studies.
