Abstract

An exact analysis of free convection flow past a vertical infinite porous plate in a rotating fluid is presented. The plate and the fluid are assumed to rotate in a solid body rotation in a steady state. Exact solutions for the velocity and temperature fields have been derived. The effects ofE, the Ekman number, on the flow characteristics are discussed.
