A study is made of the free convection in hydromagnetic flows through a porous medium of a heat generating fluid past an infinite vertical porous plate. A strong magnetic field is imposed in a direction which is perpendicular to the free stream and makes an alge α to the vertical direction. The governing equations for the hydromagnetic fluid flow and the heat transfer are solved analytically. The influence of Hall currents, the permeabilityK and the inclination α upon the velocity field are shown in figures.
