This study analyzes radiation, viscous dissipation and heat source effects on magneto-hydrodynamic free convection flow, of a viscous incompressible fluid over an inclined porous plate. Applying the perturbation technique, the solution of a set of ordinary differential equations are gotten as a result of reducing the non-linear partial differential equations of motion, energy and diffusion, which is solved analytically for velocity, temperature and the concentration distribution. The effect of Radiation, viscous dissipation and heat source on the velocity, temperature, concentration, skin friction, heat transfer and rate of mass flux distribution is plotted graphically using Mathematica 12 software and discussed. It is observed that increased Magnetic field reduces the velocity profile, increases the temperature, skin friction and heat transfer profile. Increase in radiation reduces heat transfer causing a mixed effect on the velocity, temperature and skin friction while an increase in the heat source causes a turbulent effect on the velocity, temperature and skin friction profile. Increase in porosity reduces the velocity, temperature, skin friction and heat transfer profile and finally parameters such as Chemical reaction, Grashof concentration number and Schmidt number had no effect on the velocity, temperature, skin friction and heat transfer profile.
