Abstract

Problem statement: In this research the researchers studied and made an analysis to the effects of suction/injection and chemical reaction on mass transfer characteristics over a stretching surface. The researcher studied the effects of some parameters appear on mass transfer. Approach: Transforming the system of partial differential equations to a system of ordinary differential equations and obtaining the exact analytical solution for the momentum boundary layer problem and the concentration boundary layer equation. Results: The effects of varying the suction and injection, chemical reaction parameter, L, Schmidt number, Sc and concentration parameter γ were determined. Conclusion: The exact analytical solution was obtained in the presence of the extra parameters, suction/ injection parameter and the chemical reaction parameter.
