An exact solution to the one-dimensional unsteady natural convection flow past an impulsively started infinite vertical plate with combined effect of thermal stratification and radiation under the influence of transverse magnetic field is presented. The solutions for fluid velocity, temperature are obtained by the Laplace transformation technique. Comparison is made between the solutions with and without thermal stratification and the differences in both the cases are presented graphically. Comparison reveals that thermal stratification has significant impact on convection flow past vertical plates on radiating MHD flows.
