In the concerned work, a model is developed to analyze the influence of chemical reaction in a Darcy-Forchheimer nanofluid mass and heat transfer flow over a nonlinearly extending surface with the effect of non-uniform magnetic force. Further, it is presumed that the fluid is viscous and incompressible. A powerful tool of similarity variables is exploited to transform the governing flow model PDEs into ordinary ones which are then solved with the aid of the SOR technique (using MATLAB software). Our outcomes are linked with those presented in earlier literature and found to be in a good connect with them. From the current investigation, it is revealed that the chemical reaction causes an enhancement in the mass transfer rate whereas the Forchheimer parameter tends to devaluate the mass as well as heat transport rate on the surface. The influences of different involved parameters are examined and visualized through tables and diagrams.
