Analytic solution for MHD rotating flow of a second grade fluid over a shrinking surface
Abstract
This Letter looks at the rotating flow of a second grade fluid past a porous shrinking surface. The fluid is electrically conducting in the presence of a constant applied magnetic field. The governing partial differential equations are first reduced into ordinary differential equations and then solved by homotopy analysis method (HAM). Convergence of the series solution is shown explicitly. In addition, the obtained results are illustrated graphically to indicate the effects of the pertinent physical parameters.
