Forced flow of an electrically conducting Newtonian fluid due to an exponentially stretching sheet is studied numerically. Free stream velocity is present and so is suction at the sheet. The governing coupled, nonlinear, partial differential equations of flow and heat transfer are converted into coupled, nonlinear, ordinary differential equations by similarity transformation and are solved numerically using shooting method, and curve fitting on the data is done by differential transform method together with Padé approximation. Prescribed exponential order surface temperature (PEST) and prescribed exponential order surface heat flux are considered for investigation of heat transfer related quantities. The influence of Chandrasekhar number, suction/injection parameter, and freestream parameter on heat transport is presented and discussed. Coefficient of friction and heat transport is also evaluated in the study. The results are of interest in extrusions and such other processes.
