This paper aims at the factors influencing the flow rate of Magneto Hydro Dynamic driven flow along an infinite vertical porous plate which is in accelerated state. The levarage of Prandtl number on flow rate for a constant magnetic intensity has been examined. The observations reveal that the flow rate is more for higher values of the Prandtl number. Also as magnetic intensity is decreased then flow rate is found to be more. Increased values of Prandtl number, for constant value of magnetic intensity, resulted in increased flow rate. The rate of flow of the fluid is more for decreasing values of the Grashoff number. In addition when the Grashoff number is maintained at fixed value and Prandtl number is kept increasing the flow rate increases. However, such an increase is found to be very marginal. It is seen that as the magnetic intensity decreases there is a higher rate of the flow. Further, as Grashoff number decreases the rate of flow also decreases. The findings also reveals that as the Grashoff number decreases the rate of flow rate is more and the same is the case even with respect to the applied magnetic intensity.
