The paper presents a study of a forced flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting Newtonian fluid due to an exponentially stretching sheet. The governing coupled, non-linear, partial differential equations are converted into coupled, non-linear, ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation and are solved numerically using shooting method. The influence of various parameters such as the Prandtl number, Chandrasekhar number, variable viscosity parameter, heat source (sink) parameter and suction/injection on velocity and temperature profiles are presented and discussed.
