Abstract

An analysis has been developed in order to study the flow and heat transfer on a stretching surface in a rotating fluid, in the presence of a magnetic field. The partial differential equations governing the non-similar flow have been solved numerically by using the implicit finite difference and the difference-differential methods. The magnetic field increases the skin friction coefficient in the x-direction, but reduces the skin friction coefficient in the y-direction and the Nusselt number also decreases. On the other hand, the skin friction coefficients in x and y directions increase, in general, with the rotation parameter, but the Nusselt number decreases. The Nusselt number also increases with the Prandtl number.
