Abstract: This study investigates the MHD flow between two parallel infinite plates. Here the upper plate is moving with constant velocity and the lower plate is held stationary and a constant pressure gradient is applied to the system which is under the influence of an inclined magnetic field. The governing equations are formulated and transformed into non dimensional form. Numerical solution of the transformed governing equations are obtained using the Finite Difference method. The fluid velocity at different inclinations of the magnetic field and different strengths of magnetic field have been shown graphically and it has been observed that the increase in the angle of inclination leads to a decrease in fluid velocity and also an increase in magnetic strength leads to a decrease in the velocity profile.
