  • This paper presents, a novel solution to the effect of heat and mass transfer on nanofluid over a moving/stationary vertical plate drenched in porous medium under the consideration of various pressure gradients. Copper C u as nanoparticle and water as a base fluid have been considered. The governing equations are solved analytically by applying Laplace transform technique and unified closed form results are exhibited. Numerical solutions are also obtained by using Crank Nicolson method with the aid of mathematical software Mathlab and solutions are compared with closed form solutions. The velocity, concentration and temperature profiles are plotted graphically for different flow pertinent parameters like magnetic parameter, porosity parameter, thermal and solute Grashof number, nanoparticle volume fraction parameter, time, Schmidt number, chemical reaction parameter and Prandtl number. A detailed results in the contest of Skin friction, Sherwood number and Nusselt number are calculated for the benefit of engineering interest.
