Hybrid nanofluid has become one of the major interest topics among researchers nowadays due to its significant impact in myriad applications. This paper modeled and explored the properties of flow and heat transfer of mixed convection stagnation point flow for hybrid nanofluid (alumina-copper/water) on a vertical plate with slips and suction. By using the method of similarity transformation, the governing set of partial differential equations (PDEs) are transformed into ordinary differential equations (ODEs). These derived equations are then evaluated numerically by adopting the bvp4c function that is available in Matlab software. In the presence of slips together with the opposing flow of mixed convection, the local Nusselt number (heat transfer rate) can be augmented by increasing the solid volume fraction of copper. The surge of 0.5% of copper volume fraction can accelerate the heat transfer rate by approximately 1.3% in this present analysis within the specified value of slips, mixed convection, and suction. The stability analysis is conducted due to the existence of dual solutions and only the first solution is stable for practical application.
