A similarity solution is proposed for the analysis of steady free convection heat and mass transfer over a stretching sheet. The effect of radiation, chemical reaction and variable viscosity on hydromagnetic heat and mass transfer in the presence of magnetic field are investigated. The governing partial differential equations are transformed to the ordinary differential equations using similarity variables, and then solved numerically by means of the fourth-order Runge– Kutta method with shooting technique. A comparison with exact solution is performed and the results are found to be in excellent. Numerical results for the velocity, temperature and concentration as well as for the skin-friction, Nusselt number, and the Sherwood number are obtained and reported graphically for various parametric conditions to show interesting aspects of the solution.
