variable surface temperature and uniform mass flux have been studied. The dimensionless governing
equations are solved by an efficient, more accurate, unconditionally stable and fast converging implicit finite
difference scheme. The effect of velocity, concentratiion and temperature profiles for different parameters
like magnetic field , thermal radiation, Schmidt number, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number are
studied. It is observed that the velocity decreases with increasing values of the magnetic field parameter or
radiation parameter.MHD; Radiation; Isothermal; Vertical plate; Finite-difference; Variable temperature; Mass flux.6169http://jafmonline.net/JournalArchive/download?file_ID=38960&issue_ID=224R.Muthucumaraswamymsamy@svce.ac.in`NoProfessorand Head, Department of Applied Mathematics, Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering, Irungattukottai 602117, Sriperumbudur Taluk, India `
