The effect of a uniform distribution of heat source on the onset of stationary convection in a horizontal Boussinesq magnetic fluid layer bounded by isothermal nonmagnetic boundaries is investigated. Solutions are obtained using a higher order Galerkin expansion technique, considering different isothermal boundary combinations (rigid-rigid, rigid-free, and free-free). It is found that the effect of internal magnetic number, due to a heat source, is to make the system more unstable. The results obtained, in the limiting cases, compare well with the existing literature.
