In this paper, unsteady electrically conducting, incompressible, heat and mass transfer Magnetohydrodynamic free convective fluid flow with Cu-nanoparticles over a vertical plate embedded in a porous medium and variable boundary conditions are considered. The governing PDE’s have been converted to non-dimensional equations then solved by FET for velocity, temperature and concentration profiles with the influence of buoyancy force due to heat and mass transfer, Prandtl and Schmidt number , time, magnetic and chemical reaction parameter in case of pure fluid and Cu-water nanofluid. The Cu-water nanofluid velocity is low than pure fluid, these are presented through graphical form . Also presented the local Skin-friction coefficient, rate of heat and mass transfer and code of validation through tabular forms.
Keywords: Magnetohydrodynamic; Cu-nanoparticles; Finite Element Technique.
