The present work is concerned with unsteady two-dimensional laminar flow of an incompressible, viscous, perfectly electrically conducting fluid past a nonisothermal stretching sheet in the presence of a transverse magnetic field acting perpendicularly to the direction of fluid. By means of the successive approximation method, the governing equations for momentum and energy have been solved. The effects of surface mass transfer fω, Alfven velocity α, Prandtl number P, and relaxation time parameter τ0 on the velocity and temperature have been discussed. Numerical results are given and illustrated graphically for the problem considered.
