Abstract

The unsteady hydromagnetic flow of electrically conducting liquids whose Prandtl numbers are different from unity has been considered when the flow takes place near an infinite vertical flat plate subject to uniform heat flux and accelerated motion. A unified exact solution has been derived for the boundary layer velocity and skin friction for the cases of magnetic field being fixed relative to the fluid or to the vertical plate. The solution has been presented in real forms for fluids whose Prandtl numbers are greater than or less than unity. The response of the boundary layer fluid velocity to the variations in magnetic and buoyancy forces has been discussed for two sample fluids corresponding to the different Prandtl number categories. The influence of these forces on the skin friction has also been shown.
