Abstract: This article investigates the hydromagnetic mixed convection heat and mass transfer flow of an incompressible Boussinesq fluid past a vertical porous plate with constant heat flux in the presence of radiative heat transfer in an optically thin environment, viscous dissipation, and an nth order homogeneous chemical reaction between the fluid and the diffusing species. The dimensionless governing equations for this investigation are solved numerically by the fourth-order Runge-Kutta integration scheme along with shooting technique. Numerical data for the local skin-friction coefficient, the plate surface temperature, and the local Sherwood number have been tabulated for various values of parametric conditions. Graphical results for velocity, temperature, and concentration profiles based on the numerical solutions are presented and discussed.
