The porous medium is in fact a non-homogeneousmoving vertical flat plate in the presence of heat source, medium. The velocity is usually so small and the flowthermal diffusion, large suction and the influence of uniform passages are so narrow that laminar flow may be assumedmagnetic field applied normal to the flow. Usual similaritytransformations are introduced to solve the momentum, without hesitation. Rigorous analysis of the flow is notenergy and concentration equations. To obtain the solutions possible because the shape of the individual flow passages isof the problem, the ordinary differential equations are solved so varied and so complex.
