In this paper, we have considered the heat transfer on the unsteady hydro magnetic convective flow of an incompressible viscous
electrically conducting heat generating/ absorbing second grade fluid through porous medium in a rotating parallel plate channel
under the influence of uniform transfer magnetic field normal to the channel. The momentum equation for the flow is governed
by the Brinkman's model. The analytical solutions for the velocity and temperature distributions are obtained by making use of
regular perturbation technique and computationally discussed with reference to flow parameters through the graphs. The skin
friction and Nusselt number are also evaluated analytically and computationally discussed with reference to pertinent parameters
in detail.
