This study aims to investigate the MHD stagnation point flow of Al2O3 -Water nanofluid with mixed convection effect pass a sliced magnetic porous sphere. The unsteady Al2 O3 -Water nanofluid mixed convection boundary layer flows the stagnation point is an interesting study. This implementation of this concept can use in the problems of engineering and industrial fields such as propulsion ships system, oil drilling, chemical piping, and nuclear reactor coolant. In this paper, we consider the effect of magnetic, porosity, and slicing angel parameters towards the velocity and temperature profiles. We construct a mathematical model of MHD flow in Al2O3 -Water nanofluid to obtain dimensional governing equations. Then, the equations converted into non-dimensional equations by using non-dimensional variables and unsimilarity equations using stream function. The solution of the model solved by numerically using the Keller-Box scheme. The velocity and temperature profiles are determined for various non-dimensional parameters such as magnetic parameter, sliced angle, and porosity parameter. We obtain that the velocity of Al2O3 -Water nanofluid decreases but the temperature decreases when magnetic parameters increases. For the porosity parameter increases then the velocity of the fluid decreases but the temperature of the fluid increases. For the sliced angle parameter increases then the velocity of the fluid increases but temperature of the fluid decrease. For the volume fraction parameter increases then the fluid velocity decreaes but the fluid temperature increases.
