Theoretical solution of thermal radiation effects on unsteady flow past an exponentially accelerated vertical plate with variable temperature and uniform mass diffusion has been studied. The plate temperature as well as concentration level near the plate are raised uniformly. The fluid considered here is a gray, absorbing - emitting radiation but a non - scattering medium. The effect of velocity profiles are studied for different phys ical parameters like thermal radiation parameter, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number and Schmidt number. It is observed that the velocity increases with increasing values the thermal Grashof number or mass Grashof number. The trend is just reverse d with respect to the thermal radiation parameter.
