In this research paper, we have examines the unsteady flow of heat and mass transfer over a horizontal stretching sheet in presence of thermal radiation and chemical reaction effects by numerical method. The governing unsteady boundary layer equations for the momentum, heat and mass transfer were transformed to a set of ordinary differential equations by using similarity transformation. Then these set of ordinary differential equations were solved by using MATLABís built in solver bvp4c. The velocity, temperature and concentration profiles were drawn for various values of parameters such as the Chemical reaction parameter (𝐶𝑅), Thermal radiation parameter (𝑅) and unsteadiness parameter (𝐴) and results are discussed graphically.

Keywords :Heat transfer and Mass transfer, Thermal radiation, Chemical reaction Unsteadiness parameter.
