In this paper we examine the flow of a conducting fluid between a solid rotating disk and a stationary porous disk with uniform section of fluid through the porous disk in the presence of a magnetic fiels. The equations of motion are solved using least change secant update quasi-Newton and modern root finding techniques. The fluid motion depends on the cross-flow Reynolds number, rotation Reynolds number and Hartmann number. The effects of the parameters on the flow field are presented graphically.
