This article investigates the mixed convection flow of viscoelastic liquid because of an extending cylinder. The heat transfer investigation has been completed. Energy equation in attendance of heat, radiations are considered. Convective limit conditions for heat and mass exchange are utilized on the outside of the extending cylinder. Suitable transformations are utilized to decrease the overseeing nonlinear partial differential equations into standard differential equations. The subsequent differential equations alongside the boundary conditions are solved analytically by utilizing the homotopy investigation strategy (HAM) for acquiring the convergent series solutions. The effects of physical parameters on the velocity and temperature fields are investigated. Numerical estimations of local Nusselt numbers are computed and analyzed.
