A computational model is presented to explore the properties of heat source, chemically reacting radiative, viscous dissipative MHD flow of an incompressible viscous fluid past an upright cone under inhomogeneous mass flux. A numerical study has been carried out to explore the mass flux features with the help of Crank-Nicolson finite difference scheme. This investigation reveals the influence of distinct significant parameters and the obtained outputs for the transient momentum, temperature and concentration distribution near the boundary layer is discussed and portrayed graphically for the active parameters such as the Schmidt number Sc, thermal radiation Rd, viscous dissipation parameter ɛ, chemical reaction parameter λ, MHD parameter M and heat generation parameter Δ. The significant effect of parameters on shear stress, heat and mass transfer rates are also illustrated.
