An exact solution of an oscillatory boundary layer flow bounded by two horizontal flat plates, one of which is oscillating in its own plane and the other at rest, is developed. The fluid and the plates are in a state of solid body rotation with constant angular velocity about the z-axis normal to the plates. The fluid is assumed to be second grade, incompressible, and electrically conducting. A uniform transverse magnetic field is applied. During the mathematical analysis, it is found that the steady part of the solution is identical to that of viscous fluid. The structure of the boundary layers is also discussed. Several known results of interest are found to follow as particular cases of the solution of the problem considered.
