Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know how to derive the components of acceleration in other coordinates like spherical

start here :

and at last we have :

also , i know that acceleration is a contravariant vector :

but when i use that definition i don't derive the above result for acceleration !?

and reach to a different results

so what is my mistake ?
