In the present study, the effects of radiation and chemical reaction on unsteady free convection flow and mass transfer of a viscous, electrically conducting incompressible fluid near an impulsively moving vertical flat plate with ramped wall temperature is studied. The primary purpose of this study is to characterize the effects of ramped wall temperature, radiation parameter, chemical reaction parameter, Schmidt number etc., on the flow properties. Exact solutions of the present problem are obtained in closed form by Laplace transform technique. The variations in fluid velocity, temperature and concentration are shown graphically whereas numerical values of skin friction, rate of heat and mass transfer are presented in tabular form to observe the effects of various parameters.
