The three-dimensional flow of a viscous fluid in the presence of the transverse magnetic field past an infinite porous plate moving with a time-dependent velocity in a rotating medium is investigated. An exact solution is found by using the Laplace transform method. The order of Stokes, Ekman, and Stokes-Rayleigh layers arising in the problem are derived and the influence of the magnetic field and suction (blowing) is studied. The behavior of the drag and lateral stress on the plate is discussed and the power input required to keep the plate in motion calculated. It is also found that a normal solution exists at the resonant frequency for the problem investigated here.
