A suction/injection (s) controlled free convection motion of a viscous incompressible fluid past an infinite permeable vertical plate considered. The expression for temperature (?) and velocity (u) fields obtained and using laplace transform technique. The influence of each variable parameter is discussed with the aid of graphs. It is found that temperature (?) is higher near the plate with injection while velocity (u) is more enhanced near the plate with both suction and injection. Also it is observed that the skin friction(t) decreases with increasing suction/injection (s) when time (t) is constant.
