The present paper deals with the study of a convective heat transfer characteristics of an incompressible viscous dusty fluid over an exponentially stretching surface with an exponential temperature distribution. The similarity transformation is used to reduce the system of governing partial differential equations into a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations which is then solved numerically using Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg fourth-fifth method (RKF45) with the help of Maple. The influence of physical parameters such as the Prandtl number, mixed convection parameter, the local fluid-particle interaction parameter, Eckert number and the magnetic parameter on the flow and heat transfer characteristics are analyzed and discussed in details through tables and graphs. The behavior of velocity and temperature profile of hydromagnetic mixed convection flow with fluid-particle suspension are assumed to have specific exponential function forms. The present numerical results are compared with the earlier published results.
