Abstract: An analytical study on unsteady hydromagnetic free convective flow of a viscous incompressible electrically conducting fluid in the presence of an inclined magnetic field taking Hall currents into account has been presented. The governing equations are solved analytically using the Laplace transform technique. The variations of the fluid velocity components and the fluid temperature are shown graphically and are discussed. The shear stresses and the rate of heat transfer at the channel plates are derived. The results are shown in figures and tables followed by a quantitative discussion.
Keywords: Hydromagnetic, free convection, Hall currents, thermal radiation
