This work concentrates on stagnation point flow
of a nanofluid over an impermeable stretching cylinder
with mass transfer and slip effects. Carbon nanotubes
(CNTs) and water are used as a nanofluid in the present investigation.
Two types of CNTs are used as nanoparticles
(i) Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and (ii) multiwall
carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Appropriate transformations
are used to achieve a system of ordinary differential
equations. Convergent series solutions are obtained.
Behavior of various parameters on the velocity, temperature
and concentration profiles are discussed graphically.
Numerical values of skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number
and Sherwood number are computed and analyzed.
