Abstract

In this paper, free convection of nanofluids flow with oscillating vertical parallel plates and mass diffusion were considered. Obtained equations were converted into ordinary differential equations with appropriate transformations. Method of Laplace transform was used to find the exact solutions of velocity, temperature and concentration profiles from the dimensionless governing equations. Discussion of graph pertaining to different embedded parameters such as Prandtl number, Schmidt number, Grashof and mass Grashof number, oscillating parameter and nanoparticles volume fraction parameter was also added. Skin friction, Nusselt and Sherwood number were also discussed and deliberated.
