dc.description.abstract: Enhancement of heat and mass transfer heat over rotating plates in industrial processes is a major area of research recently due to several attempts to find cost-effective means. In this study, the flow of Williamson fluid is considered because of its ability to exhibit pseudo-plastic and shear-thinning properties. A theoretical analysis of the effect of Coriolis force and the angle inclination on the magnetohydrodynamic flow of Williamson fluid is considered. The flow is modelled by including Coriolis force and angle of inclination in the Navier-Stokes equation. By adopting a suitable similarity transformation, the system of governing partial differential equations is reduced to a system of ordinary differential equations which are solved using bvp4c solver in MATLAB. The simulations are depicted as graphs and it is found that velocity increases with increasing Coriolis force while it decreases as the magnetic field strength and inclination angle increases. Also, the local skin friction reduces as the rotation increases. Hence, to boost heat and mass transfer in the flow of fluid over a rotating inclined plate in a magnetic field, it is recommended that rotation should be increased and magnetic field strength should be reduced.en_US
