An analysis is carried out to examine the effects of the steady flow of an electrically conducting viscous incompressible nanofluid in the existence of a uniform transverse magnetic field with chemical reaction over a stretching sheet considering suction or injection. The present model is demonstrated experimentally to reveal the effects of Thermophoresis and Brownian motion. Similarity solutions are investigated for the governing equations and solved numerically by using a shooting technique with fourth-order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. The impact of associated parameters on velocity profile, concentration profile and temperature profile is plotted graphically. Also the impact of local skin friction coefficient, the reduced Nusselt number and the reduced Sherwood number are discussed. The experimental setup revealed good agreement of the results with the literature.
