The paper studied the transient convection fluid flow with heat flux in an infinite vertical plate with chemical mass transfer. The dimensionless governing equations were solved using the Laplace transform method to obtained the analytical expressions of velocity, temperature and concentration profiles of the fluid with expression of Skin friction, mass and heat transfer in terms of Shear stress, Nusselt number and Sherwood number respectively. The effects of various parameters associated with

It is observed that the velocity decreases with increasing Pr, N and t, and temperature increase with increasing t and N and decrease with increasing Pr, While the concentration increase with increasing Sc, K and t. Keywords Transient, Heat flux, Chemical mass transfer and vertical plate.
