The main objective of this exploration is to analyze the effects of heat source/sink, chemical reactions, and radiation on the unsteady free convective flow through a porous medium using an infinitely oscillating vertical plate. The Laplace transformation tactics is utilized to solve the governing equations for concentration, energy, and momentum. The simulation results demonstrate that the chemical reaction parameter dwindles both primary and secondary velocities. It has been noted that an upsurge in heat generation (heat source) enhances the temperature field, while a decrease in heat absorption (heat sink) leads to a reduction in the temperature field. Furthermore, the radiation parameter causes a drop in both temperature and velocity patterns. The equation for skin friction is derived and presented graphically, and 3-dimensional surface plots are provided to depict the Nusselt number and Sherwood number. Additionally, graphical illustrations are employed to showcase the influence of various non-dimensional variables on concentration, temperature, and velocity patterns.
