The influence of slip and convective boundary heating on unsteady forced convective heat transfer of an electrically conducting incompressible fluid over a flat plate in the presence of uniform magnetic field along with chemical reaction is examined. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations by applying similarity transformations. Then the reduced equations are solved numerically by shooting technique and Runge-Kutta method and are solved analytically by homotopy analysis method.
