The problem of flow of fluid with charged suspended particulate matter through a jet is studied. The particles are allowed to diffuse through the carrier fluid and the random motion of the particles has been taken into consideration, as the size of the particles is very small.  The terms related to the heat added to the system, to slip-energy flux in the energy equation of particle phase is considered. The governing systems of nonlinear partial differential equations are solved by perturbation methods followed by similarity transformation and finite difference technique using non-uniform grid. The effects of volume fraction on skin friction, heat transfer and other boundary layer characteristics have been studied. The effects of electrification on the velocity and temperature are analyzed and presented graphically. Variation of Nusselt number and Skin-friction coefficient for various values of physical parameter are presented through tables. It is observed that the electrification of particles reduces the velocity and temperature gradient, leading to reduction of skin friction and heat transfer.
