Abstract

Hall effects on an unsteady free convective flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid between two heated vertical plates in the presence of a transverse applied magnetic field and heat generation have been studied. The governing equations are solved analytically using the Laplace transform technique. In order to get the physical insight into the problem, the effects of important parameters on temperature and velocity profiles are shown graphically and discussed in detail.
