In this manuscript, the scope of implicit finite difference method in solving a mathematical model for incompressible Jeffery’s fluid past an inclined vertical plate. The influence of many multi-physical parameters in these variables is illustrated graphically and skin friction and Heat transfer rate are computed and discussed through the table. The results found that fluid flow is reduced with increasing Deborah number De, but temperature is accelerates. Increasing λ enhances flow of the fluid, but temperature reduced.
