### EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL REACTION IN THERMAL AND MASS DIFFUSION OF MICROPOLAR FLUID SATURATED IN POROUS REGIME WITH RADIATION AND OHMIC HEATING

**ABSTRACT**

The present paper analyzes the chemically reacting free convection MHD micropolar flow, heat and mass transfer in porous medium past an infinite vertical plate with radiation and viscous dissipation. The non-linear coupled partial differential equations are solved numerically using an implicit finite difference scheme known as Keller-box method. The results for concentration, transverse velocity, angular velocity and temperature are obtained and effects of various parameters on these functions are presented graphically. The numerical discussion with physical interpretations for the influence of various parameters also presented.
