Abstract: In this work we considered the effect of magnetic field and viscous dissipation on free convection flow of an incompressible and viscous laminar fluid in the presence of thermal conductivity over a vertical plate. Numerical solutions for the governing mass, momentum and energy equations are given. A discussion has been provided for the effect of local Grashof number (Gr), Prandtl number (Pr), Eckert number (Ec) and magnetic field parameter (M) on two-dimensional flow and results for the velocity, temperature distribution as well as the skin-friction and the rate of heat transfer and pertinent results on the effect of various parameters controlling the system are shown graphically and presented in tabular form.
