The natural convection in an incompressible viscous fluid flowing near a semi-infinite impermeable vertical plate has been investigated. Assuming that the fluid-plate system is undergoing a rigid-body rotation, the nonlinear set of governing boundary layer momentum and thermal equations has been solved using an appropriate implicit finite difference numerical scheme. The effect of the rotation parameter on the developing flow has been discussed in detail for a specific fluid. Shear stress and heat transfer parameters have also been computed and analysed.
