Unsteady hydromagnetic natural convection boundary layer flow of a viscous, incompressible, and electrically conducting dusty fluid past an impulsively moving vertical plate with ramped temperature in the presence of thermal radiation and transverse magnetic field is studied. Exact solutions of the governing equations for fluid and particle velocities and fluid and particle temperatures are obtained in closed form by Laplace transform technique. To compare the results obtained in this case with that of an isothermal plate, exact solutions of the governing equations are also obtained for an isothermal plate. The expressions for the skin friction and Nusselt number are also derived for both ramped temperature and isothermal plates. Numerical values of fluid and particle velocities and fluid and particle temperatures are displayed graphically for various values of pertinent flow parameters for both ramped temperature and isothermal plates, whereas numerical values of skin friction and Nusselt number for both ramped temperature and isothermal plates are presented in tabular form for pertinent flow parameters.
