A complete shape factor investigation of water-based mixture type hybrid nano-fluid in a permeable boundary with the impact of magnetic field, thick dissemination, and warm radiation is presented in this article. A computational convection analysis of an inverted semi vertical cone with a porous surface in the form of S i O 2 / w a t e r nano-fluid and M O S 2 − S i O 2 / w a t e r hybrid nano-fluid transport is developed. The system of differential equations is presented and resolved numerically by the Lobatto IIIA method. The temperature distributions and fluid velocity are studied along with the coefficient of skin friction and the nusselt number, taking into account the form of distinct nano-particles. The flow problem’s results are approximated by using several embedding variables. Tables and graphs are constructed for a variety of scenarios including maximum residual error, mesh points, and nusselt numbers. We conclude that boundary film thickness reduces and the fluid flow is resisted by magnetic field presence. Fluid flow slows down as λ increases, and this reduction is more evident in nanofluids than in hybrid nanofluids. With an increment in S, velocity drops. A detailed analysis of the proposed ordinary differential equations, boundary conditions, and numerical data of skin friction is given both in tabular and graphical forms. Additionally, it is observed that the fluid flow slows down more for the hybrid nanofluid than for the SiO2 /water nanofluid. Additionally, it is clear that the temperature increase for the SiO2 /water nanofluid is substantially greater. The authors deduce that the existence of a magnetic field resists fluid flow for hybrid nanofluid forms and decreases the thickness of the viscous boundary layer.
