Theoretical study of thermal radiation effects on unsteady free convective flow over a moving vertical plate in a rotating fluid is considered. An exact solution is obtained for the axial and transverse components of the velocity by defining a complex velocity. The effects of rotation, radiation, free-convection parameters and the skin friction components on the plate are discussed.
