The present article deals with the flow of an electrically conducting viscid fluid in the presence of uniform and transverse magnetic field in a straight tube whose cross-section is a rectangle and considering the flow field under the effect of time varying barometric gradient. The expression for velocity has been obtained by operational methods and the detailed discussion has been made by taking the barometric gradient constant.

Keywords :MHD flow, Rivlin-Ericksen Fluid, Magnetic Field, Pressure Gradient, Viscosity, Magnetic Induction.
