The dimensionless governing equations are solved by an efficient, more accurate, unconditionally stable and fast converging implicit finite difference scheme. The effect of velocity, concentratiion and temperature profiles for different parameters like magnetic field , thermal radiation, Schmidt number, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number are studied. It is observed that the velocity decreases with increasing values of the magnetic field parameter or radiation parameter.https://www.jafmonline.net/article_1626_70901a96bbde27279cae975bcca9d269.pdf
