In this study, analyze the thermal convection with the effect of heat source and variable gravity in an infinite length of horizontal porous layer. Both the boundaries are considered to be inclined temperature gradients with bottom wall heating and top wall cooling. For a better understanding the combined influence of variable gravity and heat source is investigated by using linear stability analysis. This thermal study is evaluated by applying shooting and Runga-Kutta methods for the velocity, temperature and vertical thermal Rayleigh number (Rz) corresponding to different flow parameters. Increasing in the horizontal Rayleigh number, which caused the strong stabilization irrespective of gravity and mass flow effects. The asymmetric nature velocity and temperature profiles are observed due to enhance the heat source.
