Abstract

This research purpose is to investigate the exact solutions for unsteady free convection flow between oscillating parallel plates with mass diffusion and chemical reaction. The governing equations are modelled and reduced using non-dimensional variables. The method used is Laplace transform method. Solutions for velocity, temperature, and concentration fields as well as skin friction, Nusselt and Sherwood number are obtained. For physical understanding, analytical results for velocity, temperature and concentration profile are plotted graphically with respect to the Schmidt number, Prandtl number, oscillating parameter, Grashof number, mass Grashof number and chemical reaction parameter. Increasing Prandtl number and Schmidt number decreases the concentration, velocity, temperature, and skin friction but increases the Sherwood and Nusselt numbers.
