# THE EFFECT OF VARIABLE VISCOSITY ON A REACTIVE HEAT GENERATING FLUID FLOW OVER A CONVECTIVE SURFACE

## Abstract

The study examines the effect of variable viscosity on a reactive fluid moving with the strong effect of internal energy running through a convective surface with the impact of appreciable thermal radiation. The governing equations guiding the energy heat transfer and the fluid motion are solved by adopting the series solution of modified decomposition method named after George Adomian. The amount of entropy formation across the convective surface and other thermophysical parameters affecting the system of the fluid flow are examined and illustrated.## References
