    Abstract :

    In this paper we study the flow of an incompressible viscous, ferrofluid through infinite parallel plates inclined at an angle θ with horizontal axis in presence of external magnetic field. Ferrofluid rheology depends on the external magnetic field applied. Ferrofluid rheology depends on the external magnetic field applied and pressure gradient. The presence of body couple plays very important role in ferrofluids. The behaviour of spin velocity is studied with and without body couple. It is observed that spin velocity obey a third order algebraic equation due to an imposed magnetic field vector H. The effect of external magnetic field and pressure gradient on spin velocity are studied and explained through graphs. Effective viscosity effects on spin velocity are also studied. The plate inclination and pressure gradient are responsible for reverse flow in spin velocity
