This article focuses on the flow of Maxwell nanofluids with graphene nanoparticles over a vertical plate (static) with constant wall temperature. Possessing high thermal conductivity, engine oil is useful to be chosen as base fluid with free convection. The problem is modelled in terms of PDE’s with boundary conditions. Some suitable non-dimensional variables are interposed to transform the governing equations into dimensionless form. The generated equations are solved via Laplace transform technique. Exact solutions are evaluated for velocity and temperature. These solutions are significantly controlled by some parameters involved. Temperature rises with elevation in volume fraction while Velocity decreases with increment in volume fraction. A comparison with previous published results are established and discussed. Moreover, a detailed discussion is made for influence of volume fraction on the flow and heat profile.
